  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: EPA to VW: Build EVs in U.S. as Penance for Diesel Cheating

Recommended Posts

Volkswagen BUDD-e concept
-It looks like cash payments aren’t the only way Volkswagen will try to make up for installing emissions-cheating software on its diesel vehicles. The German automaker may also end up building electric cars in the U.S., at the behest of the federal government.


Based on an article in the German newspaper Welt am SonntagAutomotive News reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has asked Volkswagen to produce electric vehicles at its Tennessee factory, and help build a network of electric-car charging stations, as a way of making up for the emissions-cheating diesel vehicles the automaker sold in the U.S. Volkswagen has been showing a number of all-electric concepts in the months since the diesel emissions scandal broke, including the Budd-E microbus shown above.


Volkswagen already sells a hybrid and a limited number of battery-electric vehicles in some U.S. regions, so it’s not clear whether the EPA is asking the company to build new models or simply expand production of those existing vehicles at its plant in Tennessee.


Now more than five months into the scandal, Volkswagen and the EPA still can’t come to an agreement on how to fix the 600,000 vehicles still affected by the scandal in the U.S. When asked for comment by Automotive News, Volkswagen’s spokesperson would only say, “talks with the EPA are ongoing and we are not commenting on the contents and state of the negotiations.”
