SAN FRANCISCO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and the California Air
Resources Board Chair Mary D. Nichols will hold a media availability to
discuss the California impact of the landmark $14.7 billion national
settlement with Volkswagen over “defeat device” software the company
installed in its 2.0 liter diesel vehicles.
As part of the agreement, Volkswagen will spend approximately $10 billion to
buy back or modify these vehicles, as well as pay $2.7 billion into a trust
to support environmental programs and reduce emissions and an additional $2
billion on investments and promotion of zero emissions vehicles.
California’s share represents one-quarter of the total national mitigation
funding of $4.7 billion dollars.
