CARB's notice of rejection to VW's recall plans
(CARB's notice of rejection to VW's recall plans)

 In April 2016, Volkswagen (VW) announced its Group financial results for 2015. It had global vehicle sales of approximately 10 million units, sales revenue of EUR 213.3 billion, an operating loss of EUR 4.1 billion, and special losses of EUR 16.9 billion.


 VW has not obtained approval for its recall plans from the U.S. authorities yet. It continues to discuss remedial measures with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Recall expenses are yet to be determined.


 Moreover, there are said to be over 600 civil suits related to the scandal, and while a tentative agreement was reached in a federal district court on April 21, a gag order was issued for the details, and work continues towards a final agreement by the next deadline, which was set for June 21.
