Fast Honda, Hydrogen Fuel, & VW Sentence
GUILTY! The verdict is in for the ongoing Volkswagen diesel scandal, and the company has been sentenced in U.S. federal court to three felony counts, resulting in a $2.8 billion criminal penalty. The U.S. Justice Department says Volkswagen sold diesel vehicles containing software designed to cheat on U.S. emissions tests. That’s a no-no. The sentence also includes an independent corporate compliance monitor to oversee the company during a three-year probation.
