German auto giant Volkswagen caught lying on a spectacular scale | 60 Minutes Australia SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eDKt0fHCjs : (2015) Volkswagen is right in the middle of a corporate scandal of epic proportions. The German auto giant has been caught lying, on a spectacular scale. 11 million of its ‘clean’ diesel engine cars were equipped with software deliberately programmed to cheat pollution tests. A blatant con that is highly illegal. In Australia, 10 Volkswagen models have now been suspended from sale, and 77-thousand vehicles face recall at the very least. Volkswagen’s ruthless drive to be world number one, hid a dirty secret – diesel engines that couldn’t deliver on high performance and still meet environmental standards. Michael Usher goes inside the Volkswagen lie, and meets the small band of engineering students who’ve brought a giant to its knees.
