a daily and joins us from bangalore j that's not the sort of press feed you wants while trying to expand in what could become the world's third largest passenger market. yes so this is really not. going to change much for the carmaker in terms of. profits from india because it sells very few units but it's definitely going to make a dent on their image which is trying to cultivate are far in india as a premium you know passenger car comic-con so that's definitely going to hurt a little bit there. and this is really you know the government breaking up and saying hey we're really serious about pollution and we want to do something about it and the timings are pretty bad for the comic and such but it's good to hear that at least india is waking up to environmental causes but what are emission standards like there. so right now india's emissions standards are
2:47 pm
a little behind european countries and america of course. in india is trying to improve for pollution control standards in the country and it wants to move to what is called the b s six which would be at odds with the european markets and it's also making efforts in terms of you know a lot of policy measures it's also trying to bring in more electric cars on the rolls of i twenty thirty it wants thirty percent of all the electric cars to be thirty percent of all the cars to be electric in the country saw overall there is this whole sensitivity around pollution which is coming in and that's why the emission standards need to be improved this particular instance of folks wagon being fined is an example of that they want to send out a signal to the market saying hey we're really serious about this. what about v.w. chances of actually succeeding in the indian market how seriously well could they
2:48 pm

2:49 pm
is and says the move is part of plans to move away from the premium coffee market in western europe but the infinity brand competes against local rivals including jag land rover audi b.m.w. and mercedes benz the company has not mentioned brakes it. feline's between renault nissan and it's a big has moved up a gear the comic is announcing a new board the three companies had to separate boards of management until now we're no chairman. says that he will head the new joint board and the three say they hope a tighter structure will strengthen their collaboration following the downfall of former boss carlos ghosn but he remains board member until april of tokyo did refuse his request to attend the meeting. let's bring in our very own. tell us a bit about the power battle going on between those kids that they managed to kiss and make up. well times have become
2:50 pm
a lot harder for carmakers and they cannot afford to bicker like this at least not in public so what this does is it takes the fight off the center stage both the break of the alliance is off the table as well as the potential threat of a takeover of one over the other dominic's in our he calls himself a diplomat and that is really what he has done he's appeased at least for now the japanese side by not installing another corals going which is a very powerful figure. yeah sort of giving them a little a little of their way however the shareholding structure is still remains and that gives renault a lot more power over in the sun than the other way around however now it can be fought out internally in the trenches of management trying to get the corporate cultures together rather than having to fight it in public ok because then stay where you are because i want to ask you about this next story as well the u.k.
