"The US is and remains a core market for the Volkswagen Group," CEO Matthias Müller affirmed at a press conference in Detroit on Sunday. On the eve of the North American International Motor Show which takes place there, Müller also expressed his regret about the events relating to the emissions issue. "We know we deeply disappointed our customers, the responsible government bodies, and the general public here in the US. I apologize for what went wrong at Volkswagen," Müller said, and promised: "We are totally committed to making things right."
