French authorities have opened an inquiry into Volkswagen over the rigging of emission tests.
[contextly_sidebar id=”0vKWTViI4vdfaT9q9vJr8FFjU4ugJElx”]The Paris prosecutor said it was investigating suspicions of “aggravated deception”.
Last month VW admitted that 11 million of its vehicles were fitted with devices which allowed them to cheat emissions tests.
Also on Friday Swiss authorities have ordered a temporary halt to sales of vehicles with engines affected.
Earlier this week German authorities announced their own investigation into the scandal.
