Volkswagen will pay £193 million as part of an out-of-court settlement to around 91,000 British drivers over a diesel emissions scandal where 1.2 million vehicles in Britain were fitted with software that cheated diesel emissions tests designed to limit nitrogen oxide car fumes.
The Claimants alleged VW deceived people into buying cars that breached emissions regulations by installing so-called “defeat devices”.
VW is also contributing towards claimants’ legal costs and other fees, however, it made no admissions in respect of liability, causation or loss, saying the costs of London trials and appeals made it prudent to seek a settlement.
