Canada: VW offers $2.1 billion to Canadian drivers after emissions scandal

 |  December 19, 2016

Volkswagen has reached a tentative settlement for compensating Canadian owners of VW-made diesel vehicles caught in a global scandal over rigged emissions data.

The settlement could cost Volkswagen $2.1 billion if accepted by courts in Ontario and Quebec.

According to the federal competition watchdog, it would be one of the largest consumer settlements in Canadian history.

The Competition Bureau says Volkswagen and its affiliate Audi Canada have also agreed to pay an additional $15 million for false or misleading marketing claims used to promote certain vehicles with 2.0-litre diesel engines.
