Volkswagen pays $1,6 billion to Canadian owners in Dieselgate compensation

On the 19th of December, 2016, Volkswagen AG made a decision to allocate about $2.1 billion Canadian dollars to buy back or fix 105,000 polluting diesels, as well as to make a compensation to owners, Reuters reports on Monday, citing the company’s message.

This means that the company will pay 105,000 owners of EA189 2.0-litre diesel-engined cars with in-built emissions cheats approximately $5000 - $8000 each, as well as pledges to buy back their vehicles in case the corresponding request is made, Wheelsmag says.

In summer, Volkswagen made such move regarding the U.S. owners of its vehicles, having allocated over $10.03 billion to buy back or fix 475,000 U.S. vehicles.

A so-called Dieselgate scandal occurred Volkswagen’s official statement that over 11 million of its vehicles worldwide had been sold with diesel engines that ran much cleaner during official emissions tests than they did in ordinary driving.
