VOLKSWAGEN SHARES TANK ON EMISSIONS FRAUD Around 15 billion Euros (US$16.9 billion) was wiped off the market value of Volkswagen AG in one go, following revelations about German carmaker VW having rigged US emissions tests for more than 500,000 of its diesel cars. By early next afternoon trading in Frankfurt, Volkswagen’s share price was down a stunning 20.4%, after hitting a three-year low of 125.4 Euros. Its dramatic fall weighed heavily on Germany’s main stock index, the DAX, which underperformed its peers in Europe with a 0.6% decline. In India, apropos, carmaker General Motors India was found guilty of a similar practice in relation to its multiutility vehicle Tavera, which saw the heads of its several senior officials rolling. The fallout on Volkswagen’s reputation for probity has seriously been damaged by these revelations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US that it has skirted clean air rules. The EPA has also indicated that VW could face fines that might run up to more than US$ 18 billion.
