Volkswagen's emissions cheat to cause 60 premature deaths in US

Excess emissions from Volkswagen's defeat devices will cause around 60 people in the US to die 10 to 20 years prematurely, say researchers. In total, Volkswagen's excess emissions will generate $450 million in health expenses and other social costs, the study projects. But a total vehicle recall by the end of 2016 may save up to $840 million in further health and social costs.
