Volkswagen Faces Court Case From Investors Over Emissions Scandal

New Hampshire Receiving Funding for EV Infrastructure

Sept. 27, 2018
Volkswagen to pay New Hampshire $31 million in settlement

New Hampshire has received $31 million as part of the settlement from the Volkswagen emissions scandal.

The Concord Monitor reports the state is using $4.6 million from the settlement to increase the amount of charging stations for electric cars.

The state has few public charging stations, and the ones that exist are mostly Tesla-only stations along Interstates 93 and 95.

An additional $15.5 million will help replace older vehicles owned by the state and local school districts with cleaner diesel or alternative-fuel vehicles.
