About VOLKSWAGEN Emission Scandal for competitive exams
It was really shameful day for the Volkswagen when they caught for cheat with emission standards. Not only for car makers or Germany govt., it was like a explosion news for everyone living in this world. Because this is the same company whose slogan is Truth in Engineering; How we can believe in Company who doesn’t comply with its Slogan. Volkswagen Emission scandal is Shocking as well as trust breaking news for every person who had blind faith on this big name. Here we will tell you everything in detail; What is this Emission Scandal, What type of emissions are this, Don’t they have any other solution for this problem, What would happen with Volkswagen in Future as well as How is it going to affect share market as well as Owners of Volkswagen owners ? and lots of thing.
What is Volkswagen Emission Scandal
It seems that some of the Diesel vehicles of Volkswagen were unable to completely satisfactory with emission standards of US so they prepare a Cheat to Pass US laws for Emission Standards. They prepared a Engine Software which Could detect that Emission test is to going on; So it stopped dynamometer which automatically reduces torque and similarly Fuel efficiency so that it could pass test and When testing got completed, all components revert back to its original stage Which automatically increases Torque, power and also the increase supply of Exhaust fumes (Toxic material) above the legal limit.
What type of emissions are these
Most of the vehicles produce Toxic chemicals so they use Cleansing system to clean emissions as much as possible before exiting from exhaust pipes. This cleansing system is costly as well as reduces Mileage of automobile so every automobile has its own system to reduce emissions and their own standards. Mainly two chemicals matter for the Toxic gases; Co2 as well as No2 which are real culprits for producing polluted air.
If we talk about US Govt. Emission Laws; their limit for producing NO gas during emission is .025 g/K.M.
While Volkswagen Vehicles are emitting 1g/K.M NO gas; it means about 40 times the legal limit.
How other companies are handling this problem in their vehicles
Mainly there are two alternates to vehicle emission problem; first one is Urea based Solution and second one is Trap System. In Urea based solution, Urea Cleans the emission on exit way. Problem with Urea Based cleaning system is that Urea is to be replaced during Oil Change so this process is little bit time consuming as well as Bulky, weight to the vehicle process. Second method is trap system in which Urea is to be completely mixing with Emissions and it automatically squeeze toxic chemicals before exiting. Most of the Automobile owners use Urea Based solution Method because Trap Method is little bit complex and more time consuming as compared.
Why VOLKSWAGEN decided to stop Urea-Based Solution
To reduce weight of vehicles and Complexity of engines. To make you feel true power of engineering which you can’t imagine.
What would happen with Volkswagen in Future as well as how is it going to affect share market as well as Owners of Volkswagen owners
As this matter is on the front page of Newspapers so VOLKWAGEN have to take serious steps so that they can save their future in market otherwise their share will go more down and It could completely vanish If They wouldn’t take decision ASAP.
Future Possibilities related to Volkswagen Emission Scandal:
- They will recall all their Vehicles to replace software cheat with urea based Solution. This involves too much cost but we don’t hope if there is any other solution of this problem.
- Offer a new model in exchange.
