Consumer assocation demands action

Sweden will take no legal action against Volkswagen over the diesel emissions scandal as prosecutors have no suspicion of wrongdoing against any individual in Sweden.

Following the decision, the Swedish Automobile Association (Motormännens Riksförbund) called on other Swedish authorities to take action.

More than 220,000 cars from Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi and Seat were recalled in Sweden after news of the fixing of diesel emission tests emerged in September 2015.
