VW cars can also cheat European emissions tests, BBC learns
A laboratory test carried out for BBC Panorama shows that Volkswagen diesel cars programmed with a "defeat device" can cheat official European pollution tests, as well as tests in the US. The company told the BBC it believes this is the first time the cheating software has been filmed in action. VW has admitted it used the device to rig tighter pollution tests in America. But it's been more ambiguous about whether it used the same tactics to actively cheat official European tests.
