New VW boss vows reform, 'not revolution' to overcome diesel scandalVolkswagen's new chief vowed Friday to push on with reform and cultural change to steer the German auto giant out of the cloud of the "dieselgate" scandal and into a future of electric cars and sustainable mobility. "It's about continued development, not a revolution," said Herbert Diess, the 59-year-old Austrian who took over late Thursday from Matthias Mueller, 64, as CEO of one of the world's largest automobile groups. "We will emphatically address the special challenges that lie ahead of us, especially in electromobility, digitisation and new mobility services," he told a press conference at the group's Wolfsburg headquarters.
