22nd September 2015, Comments 0 comments

Carlos Ghosn, head of France's Renault and Japan's Nissan carmakers, said Tuesday he was not too worried about the impact of the growing Volkswagen emissions scandal on the auto industry.

"There is doubt existing today," Ghosn acknowledged in an interview with Bloomberg TV, speaking after Volkswagen admitted that 11 million of its diesel cars worldwide are equipped with devices that can cheat air pollution tests.

But "I am not so worried about it," he said in the interview broadcast from the Frankfurt auto show.

"Every country has their own testing and emissions. We have to adapt in the most truthful and transparent way."

Ghosn, chief executive of Renault and Nissan, was questioned about the potential fallout from the Volkswagen crisis that was hitting shares of VW and other automakers in Europe and the United States.
