有难同当?Bosch将支付3.275亿美元一起赔偿Volks

Volkswagen柴油引擎排污造假案从2015年9月底爆发至今,先前在主要处理美国地区和解赔偿的情况下,总花费已经达到165亿美元之多,而当时尚未有针对3.0升柴油引擎的修正等等。而就在,Volkswagen提出了3.0升TDI柴油引擎和解方案,U-CAR也在2月2日撰写了相关报导。

随着最新的方案提出,Volkswagen预计花费的相关赔偿费用也不断上修,根据路透社表示,预估美国8万辆3.0升TDI引擎的车辆将让Volkswagen集团支付约12.2亿美元进行购回或修正。另外还有一项最新消息就是德国供应商Bosch也发表声明,将支付3.275亿美元,一起负责赔偿美国所有受影响的车主。

3.0升TDI柴油引擎赔偿

首先在Volkswagen的赔偿方面,先前针对美国搭载2.0升TDI柴油引擎的车辆,已经花费了高达100.3亿美元购回与修正了40多万辆,如今大约8万辆的3.0升TDI引擎之车款,将再支出12.2亿美元进行购回或者技术修正。而根据美国法官的批准,如果选择修正车辆的车主,将可获得7,000至16,000美元不等的赔偿,且如果性能出现问题,Volkswagen需额外再支付500美元给车主。

Volkswagen表示,在2016年12月底之前,2009-2012年生产的Volkswagen与Audi,将有2万辆车会由集团进行回购,并给予车主7,500美元,其余6万辆车,包含Volkswagen、Audi与Porsche则预计将会进行召回修正的作业。

广  告Bosch将支付3.275亿美元一起赔偿

除了Volkswagen的3.0升柴油引擎解决方案出来之外,另一个重点则是德国供应商Bosch。在事情爆发之后,美国当局针对Bosch也不断进行相关调查,Bosch也不断被外界质疑为协助造假案的帮兇,不过截至目前为止尚未有明确的证据,且Bosch提出的最新声明稿也强调其没有不法的行为。

然而Robert Bosch GmbH管理委员会主席Volkmar Denner表示,为了协助Volkswagen的和解,同时也是公司的一个转型过程,因此公司内部决议提供3.275亿美元来进行和解。这些和解金当中,将支付1.63亿美元用于解决2.0升车辆的索赔,车主每人约获得350美元,而3.0升车辆之车主将平分1.133亿美元,车主每人约可收到1,500美元。

至于Bosch的这项和解协议主要是针对民事诉讼的部分,且需要得到Charles R. Breyer法官的批准,因此在美国时间2月14日将会举行公听会,预计5月初会进行最后的批准。

Bosch原文声明稿

Stuttgart / San Francisco – Bosch has entered into a settlement agreement with civil claimants in the U.S. in order to settle the most substantial part of the civil law proceedings pending in connection with Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche diesel vehicles that were sold in the U.S. The corresponding documents have been filed overnight with the competent U.S. court, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The settlement agreement was concluded with the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (“PSC”) on behalf of proposed settlement classes.

The agreement would settle the claims of consumers and dealers of used vehicles against Robert Bosch GmbH, its affiliates, employees, and directors concerning Volkswagen and Audi diesel vehicles with 2.0L engines for model years 2009 through 2015 and Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche diesel vehicles with 3.0L engines for model years 2009 through 2016. For this purpose, Bosch will pay a total amount of USD 327.5 million (approx. EUR 304 million). By entering into the settlement, Bosch neither acknowledges the facts as alleged by the plaintiffs nor does Bosch accept any liability.

“Upon careful consideration of all relevant aspects, we have in this case decided to enter into a settlement agreement. Bosch is currently undergoing the biggest transformation process in its company history. We wish to devote our attention and our resources to the transition in mobility and in other areas of activity”, said Dr. Volkmar Denner, Chairman of the Management Board of Robert Bosch GmbH.

The settlement agreement now reached requires the approval by Judge Charles R. Breyer, who conducts the nationwide multi-district proceedings in which numerous civil law actions have been combined. In a hearing scheduled for 14 February 2017, the Court will consider to grant preliminary approval of the settlement agreement. The class members will then be informed of their rights and options. It is proposed that the Court considers final approval of the settlement agreement in early May.

The settlement agreement concerns only civil law claims. As it has done since allegations have first been made public, Bosch will continue to defend its interests in all other civil and criminal law proceedings and to cooperate comprehensively with the investigating authorities in Germany and in other countries.
