volkswagenTHE Spanish government is refusing to publish an emissions report conducted prior to the Volkswagen emissions scandal.

It has emerged that 17 Volkswagen-owned vehicles were tested in Spain on the orders of the ministry of industry, energy and tourism.

A government spokesperson insists that the results from the real-world emissions report are in line with those carried out in France, Germany and the UK.

However, the report is not going to be published and findings will not be made public.

Uncovered in 2015, the Volkswagen scandal revealed that 11 million diesel cars worldwide were exceeding legal emission levels.
