Question for written answer E-005151/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Carlos Zorrinho (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Discrimination and unequal treatment in the European single market as a result of ‘Dieselgate’

Notwithstanding the enclosed recommendations of the European Parliament committee of inquiry into the measurement of emissions from the automotive sector, the vast majority of European consumers whose vehicles were fitted with defeat devices have not yet received compensation.

While customers in Germany have received a payout of EUR 800 million from Volkswagen, the 125 000 Portuguese consumers affected have to date received nothing.

Such disparities within the European single market mean discrimination and unfair treatment, which, if left unresolved, will further undermine what little consumer confidence in the European automotive industry is left in the wake of ‘Dieselgate’.

In view of this, what action will the Commission take in a bid to obtain fair and equal treatment for EU consumers?
