The top executive of the Volkswagen brand worldwide says he's optimistic that U.S. environmental regulators will approve fixes within the coming weeks or months for diesel engines that cheat on emissions tests.VW has admitted cheating by installing software in its popular 2.0 liter diesel engines that illegally turns emissions controls on during government tests and turns them off on real roads. The company has thus far denied findings by U.S. regulators that another so-called "defeat device" was also included in a smaller number of diesel vehicles with 3.0 liter engines.The company first acknowledged in September that the cheating software was included in its diesel cars and SUVs sold since the 2009 model year, as well as some recent diesel models sold by the VW-owned Audi and Porsche brands.
