BERLIN (Reuters) – German consumer protection association vzbz said on Tuesday it would, along with auto club ADAC, on Wednesday present a class action against Volkswagen over the carmaker’s manipulation of emissions software.

Vzbz wants to get compensation for owners of Volkswagen diesel cars that are not as environmentally friendly as the company says. That could affect more than 2 million diesel car owners.
