VW Reportedly Made a PowerPoint Presentation Outlining How to Cheat Emissions

Because there's no better way to outline a questionable business strategy than with a PowerPoint presentation.

<p>Your relatives may argue that the government is making an example out of Volkswagen, and that all the automakers are probably just as guilty. That's possibly true. But also consider that perhaps VW did what it did because the government regulations are too stifling for a diesel car to exist and remain competitive with its non-diesel brethren. Perhaps this was the work of a small group of rogue engineers, and that their actions should not represent the company at large.</p>

Other automakers have acted with negligence and paid the cost, but VW <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/news/a26745/epa-vw-violation/" target="_blank">decided to blatantly cheat on emissions tests</a>. VW's <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/car-technology/news/a29743/vw-tdi-emissions-settlement-cost-update/" target="_blank">$14.7 billion settlement</a> with the U.S. government is probably only the start of its troubles.</p>

CARB: Fixing All of VW's Emissions-Cheating Diesels "May Not Be Possible"

With a full fix proving difficult, agency officials consider allowing dirty diesels to remain on the streets. 

<p>Introduced in 2012, it made our 10Best Cars lists for <a href="http://www.caranddriver.com/features/the-10best-cars-of-2015-feature" target="_blank">2015</a> and <a href="http://www.caranddriver.com/features/2016-10best-cars-the-winners-features-photos-and-more-feature" target="_blank">2016</a>. It's both a large luxury car and a performance car with an available, aptly named <a href="http://blog.caranddriver.com/tesla-loses-its-freaking-mind-introduces-762-hp-model-s-ludicrous-mode-new-base-model/" target="_blank">"Ludicrous Mode."</a> At 4600 to 5000 pounds packed with 70 to 90 kWh of lithium-ion cells, the Tesla Model S is its own kind of moonshot with an entirely different take on what that means than did the GM EV1. There's even an <a href="http://blog.caranddriver.com/elon-take-the-wheel-we-test-teslas-new-autopilot-feature" target="_blank">optional Autopilot system</a> that goes most of the way toward autonomous driving ability. <br><br>Thirteen years since its incorporation and eight orbits of the sun since introducing its first production car, in those terms, Tesla has outlasted nearly every other new startup auto company since Porsche and Ferrari and Lamborghini were born after WWII. It has 20 years of battery and electronics development beyond EV1 to draw upon with its latest products. But range anxiety and the need for careful trip planning around recharge locations are still issues for this electric car, as has been cost (it starts at $71,200 but it's easy to spend much, much more). <br><br>The Model S, despite its price disadvantage, is outselling the Leaf nearly every month. It's a "halo car" for the entire class, and credit goes to Elon Musk for making it happen, even if his mouth sometimes speaks as loudly as the big money he's been spending. Next on the docket for Tesla: <a href="http://www.caranddriver.com/tesla/model-x" target="_blank">the Model X crossover</a> and <a href="http://blog.caranddriver.com/tesla-model-3-preorders-will-begin-in-march-says-elon-musk/" target="_blank">the more-affordable Model 3 sedan</a>.</p>
