VW scandal: Even the software updates disappoint
No meaningless software updates, but a commitment from the automaker industry to a conversion to Euronorm 6, at their expense. Those are the demands of Hartmut Bäumer, a former politician of “die Grünen”, to Michael Müller, governing mayor of the city of Berlin. Bäumer, himself is a victim, had his diesel undergo the software update, which was mandatory according to the district office. The result: due to the update, the emission of pollutants only decreased slightly. The NOX figure recorded a minus of 37mg, but with 1134 mg it was still well above the permissible figure of 180mg. The environmentally harmful CO2 figure even increased by 7%. An answer from the mayor is pending at this time.
