VW’s ‘Dieselgate’ Settlement Isn’t Buying Many Electric Vehicles

For all the moves backing up its newfound enthusiasm for an electric future—70 new battery-powered models by 2028, a $1 billion investment in its own battery plant, a national network of high-power charging stations—Volkswagen may make no bigger contribution to that vision than the $15 billion it paid to settle the Dieselgate scandal in the US. Most of the money went to repurchase cars from deceived customers and to promote electric cars in general. But nearly one-fifth was meant to help state governments jumpstart the shift away from driving on dirty diesel.
