[00:00:00] Dr. Martin Winterkorn steps down as CEO of Volkswagen. I'm Eddie Sabatini and this is your Autoblog Minute.

Dr. Winterkorn resigns in the wake of the VW emissions scandal. In a statement released to the press Dr. Winterkorn had this to say:

"I am shocked by the events of the past few days. Above all, I am stunned that misconduct on such a scale was possible in the Volkswagen Group...

[00:00:30] I am doing this in the interests of the company even though I am not aware of any wrongdoing on my part..."
