On September 25, 2015, a lawsuit was filed against Volkswagen AG (alleged securities laws violations. The plaintiff claimed that the defendants misled investors by failing to disclose that the Company had utilized a "defeat device" in certain of its diesel cars that allowed such cars to temporarily reduce emissions during testing, while achieving higher performance and fuel economy, as well as discharging dramatically higher emissions, when testing was not being conducted. The use of this device allowed Volkswagen to market its diesel vehicles to environmentally conscious consumers, increasing its sale of diesel cars in the United States and abroad and, as a result, its profitability. As a result of defendants' scheme and false and misleading statements and omissions, Volkswagen's ordinary and preferred ADRs traded at artificially inflated prices, reaching highs of $54.82 and $56.55 per ADR, respectively, on December 30, 2013.

The Company pled guilty to criminal charges, paid a $2.8 billion criminal fine, a $2.7 billion fine for environmental mitigation, another $2 billion for clean-emissions infrastructure, while total costs associated to rectifying the emissions issue have exceeded $18 billion.
