Volkswagen in trouble as Switzerland bans car sales over emissions scandal
Switzerland has banned the sale of 180,000 Volkswagen cars when they found out that Volkswagen implanted certain ‘defeat devices’ in their cars. The defeat device is a software program that is able to alter the engine’s performance during a regulator emissions test so that it can seem to work cleaner than it normally would.
As of this moment, Switzerland has banned the sale of any Volkswagen car in the Euro5 category as this category is believed to have most of the cars that have defeat devices installed in them. Not only that, other brands in the company such as Seat and Skoda are also affected by the ban.
