The Volkswagen Group today rolled out a comprehensive package of measures to improve air quality in Germany through fleet renewal.

Vehicle keepers in the 14 cities classified by the federal government as having the highest levels of pollution and in the surrounding areas will be entitled to the new exchange premiums.
