VW expects to start a recall of cars effected in the recent emission scandal this January.

Europe’s biggest car manufacturer has said emissions test-cheating software is present in 11 million diesel vehicles.

The company’s new chief executive Matthias Mueller made the announcement in an interview with German newspaper  Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung this week.

Mr. Mueller also stressed in the interview that only a few employees had been involved in the scandal.

Previously this year he told employees at VW’s Wolfsburg home plant in Germany the firm is facing changes that “will not be painless.”
