VW Emissions Scandal: 11m Vehicles Face Refit

Volkswagen says it will refit up to 11 million vehicles in an attempt to move on from the diesel emissions tests scandal.

Those that contained illegal software will have to be refitted, the company announced – a move which some analysts have said could cost more than $6.5 billion.
