Volkswagen sacks CEO of Audi
Volkswagen has resolved to terminate the contract of Rupert Stadler, the suspended chief executive of its premium brand Audi, with immediate effect.
The carmaker said in a statement on Tuesday in Berlin that Sales Executive Bram Schot would act as interim replacement.
Stadler was forced to step down temporarily after he was taken into custody in mid-June on suspicion of interfering with an emissions investigation.
Both VW and Audi have said that Stadler is presumed innocent unless proven otherwise.
