The Volkswagen Diesel Gate scandal is like plastic — it just seems to be everywhere. The latest news from South Korea is that the country has implemented harsher rules because of the emission scandal.
Now, South Korean regulators are probing deeper into the issue and will also check other carmakers for emission and noise levels. South Korea somehow believes that there are more automakers and Volkswagen was not the only one to cheat the system.
South Korea's investigation will cover over 12 automakers who collectively manufacture 110 diesel vehicle models. The investigation report will be announced in three months' time. There are no details as to which carmakers will be probed, but BMW, Mercedes, and the VW Group sell diesel vehicles.
In South Korea, 15 percent of vehicle sales are accounted by imports and authorities seem to be taking a hard step towards diesel vehicles. Recently, South Korea barred 80 VW models from being sold in the country, which later lead to VW itself suspending sales in South Korea.
South Korea is looking to increase electric vehicles in the country, and is expecting clean vehicles to make up as much as 30 percent of sales by the year 2020.
