German prosecutors launched another investigation into whether Martin Winterkorn and an unnamed Volkswagen board member violated disclosure laws.
A German report claims that Martin Winterkorn received a letter admitting to the defeat devices two weeks before the diesel emissions scandal went public. This was just the latest allegation that the automaker knew about the problem ahead of time but didn't tell the public.
Volkswagen chairman Martin Winterkorn says the company is prepping a battery with a 186-mile range, which is more than double the current e-Golf. Although, it's less than the projections of potential competitors like the Tesla Model 3, Chevrolet Bolt, and the rumored upcoming Nissan Leaf update.
