How the Audi boss was finally emitted
Rupert Stadler is the long-serving Chief Executive of VW's subsidiary Audi and a senior member of the group's management board. The Audi CEO was already known to be under scrutiny. He has been in charge of Audi since 2007, and has sat on the main group board since 2010. Audi was heavily implicated in the diesel emissions scandal, which first came to light in September 2015. According to a statement agreed by VW with US prosecutors as part of a settlement last year, it was Audi engineers who first came up with the so-called "Defeat device".
