Martin Winterkorn's days as head of Volkswagen AG appeared numbered Tuesday after the German carmaker said a scandal over falsified vehicle emission tests in the United States could affect 11 million of its cars worldwide.The company later said it would post a video statement by Winterkorn at 15:00 GMT.Volkswagen sold 10.1 million cars in the whole of 2014 .Workers in Wolfsburg, where Volkswagen employs over 50,000 people, were dismayed by the damage to the company's image.There have been no suggestions so far that other carmakers have engaged in the same practices as Volkswagen.The European Commission said it was in contact with Volkswagen and U.S. authorities, and it was premature to say whether specific checks on the carmaker's vehicles were needed.
