Volkswagen Hit With Lawsuit Over Advertising Claims
On Tuesday, a federal consumer watchdog sued Volkswagen, saying the company made false claims in commercials promoting its “Clean Diesel” vehicles as environmentally friendly. The Federal Trade Commission says in its filing that Volkswagen deceived customers during a seven-year period by selling more than 550,000 diesel cars based on fraudulent claims made through a marketing campaign. The FTC’s lawsuit is the latest blow for Volkswagen, which also faces at least $20 billion in potential fines for violating US clean air laws as well as hundreds of class action lawsuits from angry customers.
