Will Volkswagen Scandal Gives electric car a positive impact?

Will Volkswagen Scandal Gives electric car a positive impact? -

With Volkswagen unveiled fixing scandal emissions, it is likely to have a huge impact on the company's reputation and future development. It is reported that the company has set aside about € 6.5 billion to cover the costs of the case, but unfortunately it can rise to tens of billions of euros with the recall costs, damage to the brand, lost sales, fines and the possibility of prosecution.

Apparently, it could be even worse as there seems to be a wider impact on the automotive industry. One of them could be the mayors and government can restrict the use of diesel engines in polluted cities as seen in Paris. Paris plans to ban diesel cars from 2020. Another example is London, which introduces the ultra-low emission zone to prohibit the dirtiest diesels driving through the city center. With these two examples, it is expected that more and more cities could follow.

Another impact is that the emission test and fuel consumption by regulators could be more severe than in previous requirements because they must reflect as closely as possible to the real world situation. Diesel cars may be necessary to install systems that are able to clean their own emissions of waste which in turn make diesel cars to be more expensive to produce and as a result fewer people will want to buy.

as emissions of the car could also affect global climate change, it seems that the electric car would be a better alternative to use after all.
