Volkswagen Episode--Technological manipulation for long,cheating ?
Recently VW German auto giant caught for bypassing emission rules in US and found for many years they did it and did not rectify Why? Had they managed it by giving kickbacks?
In India VW has manufacturing plants and producing cars and other vehicles.India has had no equipment to measure such emission correctly so What poor India and her weak government will do ?.VW has arranged huge amount to pay compensation and refitting of vehicles in US. US is a mighty power and might is right so VW will pay compensation there. In India they may pay but not equivalent in US.We experienced Bhopal tragedy.
Volkswagen vehicles could meet emissions standards. To do so the vehicle would have to comprise on horse power. India's government or their lack of insight had no effect. When the vehicles were tested for emissions they program chip would cyt horse power to accomadate the standards. The consumer eanted more horse power and lower emissions. Volkswagen was not able to offer both at the same time. So they coded the program to make the customer feel good.
