Volkswagen said a recall of cars with software that can be used to evade emissions tests could start in Germany in January and last until the end of next year.Confirmation of the planned launch date of the recall of 2.8 million cars in Germany came in an interview with CEO Matthias Mueller published Wednesday in the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.Mueller also said first results of the investigation indicated that a few developers were responsible for the deceptive engine control software – but that only further investigation would settle how many company officials bear responsibility for the scandal that has engulfed the German carmaker.Volkswagen has said up to 11 million vehicles worldwide across several of its brands contain the diesel engine with the software used to cheat on U.S. emissions tests.Volkswagen Wednesday also elected longtime company executive Hans Dieter Poetsch as board chairman.
