VW orders probe into violation of US emission rules

  • German carmaker Volkswagen (VW) said it had ordered an external investigation of the violation of US emission rules.

The software installed by Volkswagen in its cars has violated the Clean Air Act, said the EPA in a statement on Friday. (Source: IANS)
