Volkswagen Says It Will Plead Guilty In Vehicle Emissions Scandal

Volkswagen said it will admit guilt to settle investigations into the automaker's diesel emissions scandal. 

Software intended to cheat emissions tests was installed in about 11 million VW cars worldwide. 

The company will dedicate just under $15 billion to pay for repairs or buy back cars, and to promote zero-emissions vehicles and environmental mitigation.
