volkswagenVOLKSWAGEN will pay back millions of euros to the Spanish government following the emissions scandal.

The German car manufacturer will reimburse subsidies up to €50 million, invested by the government in the ‘PIVE’ scheme set up to reduce CO2 emissions.

It is estimated that 800,000 VW cars worldwide have faulty CO2 emissions, 50,000 of which are in Spain.

Despite the scandal, VW are still pushing ahead with a  €4.2 billion investment in two car factories in the north of Spain.
