German court rules that VW must buy back 60,000 diesel vehicles

Consumers will get the current value of the vehicle based on mileage

A German court has ruled that Volkswagen must buy back cars from owners of its diesel cars equipped with software that evaded emissions testing — but consumers must accept the current value of the car based on the mileage they drove since buying it, not the purchase price. Volkswagen said the decision announced Monday would clear the way for settlement of remaining consumer claims in Germany. The decision affects some 60,000 individual claims brought by car owners there; around 262,000 others

The scandal has cost Volkswagen $34 billion

Volkswagen said charges of securities-law violations against its CEO and board chairman are to be dropped in return for a 9 million-euro ($10 million) payment, removing a potential distraction for the company's management team as it copes with the virus crisis and oversees the rollout of a new generation of electric cars.

But sadly, the levels are already headed back up

The world cut its daily carbon dioxide emissions by 17% at the peak of the pandemic shutdown last month, a new study found.

Past peak oil? Industry hit by weak demand finally faces threat from electric cars

'Oil and gas companies have got no ability to defeat electricity as a transport fuel'

Oil companies may be facing uncertainty as the coronavirus pandemic triggers a collapse in demand for their products, but auto makers are betting the crisis will help accelerate an electric future. With economies reeling from lockdowns to curb the virus, the sharpest plunge in oil prices in two decades has slashed the cost of filling up a tank of gas, eroding some of the incentive to make the switch to cleaner fuels. Looking ahead, cuts in capital spending forced upon energy companies as their

Uber to focus on core rides, deliveries as it cuts thousands more jobs

Uber will cut about 3,000 jobs, in addition to the 3,700 it had announced earlier this month, Khosrowshahi said, adding that the company plans to reduce investments in several "non-core projects."
