The CEO of Volkswagen said Wednesday that he would step down as the company wrestles with a scandal over rigged emissions tests. CEO Martin Winterkorn denied any personal wrongdoing but said the company needed "a fresh start." He said in a statement, "I am shocked by the events of the past few days. Above all, I am stunned that misconduct on such a scale was possible in the Volkswagen Group." Volkswagen has admitted that it rigged U.S. emissions tests to make it look as if its diesel-powered cars were emitting fewer nitrogen oxides, which can contribute to respiratory illness.
