Volkswagen suspended Audi boss Rupert Stadler and announced an interim replacement Tuesday, seeking to steady its most profitable business after German authorities arrested Stadler as part of an emissions probe.Stadler's arrest has thrown Volkswagen back into turmoil almost three years after it admitted to using illegal software to cheat U.S. emissions tests on diesel engines.VW and Audi said Monday that Stadler was presumed innocent unless proven otherwise.Stadler has been under fire from the media, politicians and VW's powerful trade unions for his handling of the scandal, but he survived a management reshuffle announced in August thanks to backing from the Piech and Porsche families that control VW. Peter Mosch, deputy chairman on Audi's supervisory board and head of its works council, said labor representatives had backed a move to appoint Schot as interim CEO to ensure that Audi's business did not suffer from the leadership crisis.
