Switzerland says it is suspending sales of Volkswagen diesel vehicles that could contain devices capable of cheating emissions tests -- in the latest fallout from the VW emissions fraud scandal. This, after the carmaker said 11 million vehicles worldwide were fitted with software similar to the kind that allowed the company to rig U.S. emissions tests, although it said the software was not turned on in the bulk of them. The Swiss ban could affect up to 180-thousand cars, and includes Audi, SEAT, Skoda and Volkswagen vehicles built between 2009 and 2014. However, the ban does not apply to cars already on the road. Regulators and prosecutors across the world are investigating the VW emissions scandal, as customers and investors launch lawsuits.
