Dieselgate has so far cost VW more than 25 billion euros ($31 billion) in buybacks, fines and compensation, and the carmaker remains mired in legal woes at home and overseas.

"There have been historic episodes where cost cutters have been brought in to sort out the namesake VW brand, but who then leave or are squeezed out before their work is really done", Sanford Bernstein analyst Max Warburton wrote in a note. He helped steer the company out of its diesel emissions scandal and into a new era of investment in electric cars.
