His arrest is likely to throw those restructuring efforts at VW into turmoil.
So did they just take their wolf and attempt to put sheep's clothing on him? Interesting way to try to protect the guy - give him a post where he will appear to be an environmentalist. And if he does get charged, they can use that distraction as an excuse for poor execution on the electrification program.
It's like they want to fail. Won't we ever get beyond this?
If VW dies, the saddest part to me will be that I never got to drive an electric minibus.
