The price of Volkswagen AG shares dropped Wednesday as a scandal about its truthfulness continued.

@&CBJX~3pYRhT[S!l2

The German car maker said its emissions testing scandal was much bigger than previously believed.

[[Eg]ng#RJ!wsO)%dMLf

The German automaker said Tuesday it lied about carbon dioxide emissions from its cars. It said it gave wrong information to regulators. This could affect about 800,000 more cars and cost at least an extra $2 billion, reported the Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal reported that VW shares were down 8.4 percent after the market opened in Frankfurt. They fell 9 percent within 25 minutes of trading. Shares of Porsche Automobil Holding SE, a controlling shareholder of VW, fell 8 percent.

Volkswagen is Europe's largest automaker. The company did not say which cars were affected, reported the Wall Street Journal. Industry analysts said cars sold in Europe were probably affected.

The U.S. government said Monday that VW cheated on emissions tests. The Associated Press reported that VW placed software in about 10,000 cars that reported false levels of pollution.

The German automaker installed that device on VW, Porsche, and Audi vehicles. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board announced the findings Monday.

The cars give off up to nine times more pollution than the amount allowed by the EPA. The EPA is a federal agency that focuses on protecting the environment.

The new report is another blow to VW. In September, the German automaker admitted that up to 11 million cars globally could have the misleading devices.

Volkswagen has reorganized top executives since the scandal emerged. The company said it contacted government agencies to fix the situation, reported the Wall Street Journal.

"Volkswagen would do well to immediately and completely disclose all people and products in this deception, no matter how far-reaching," said Karl Brauer, a senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book, a well-known car valuation and research service.

Air bag maker Takata's shares also fell Wednesday because of scandals. U.S. regulators fined the company Wednesday for producing defective airbags. Airbags inflate during accidents to protect drivers and passengers.

The U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration imposed a $200 million fine on Takata for failing to warn the public and government about the defective airbags. This was the largest civil penalty in the agency's history.

Honda Motors, Takata's biggest client, said it would no longer buy airbags from the company, just hours after the announcement.

T^~[e0C=&C.iJ

Eight people have been killed and more than 100 others injured by airbags that didn't work properly. The airbags exploded instead of inflated during accidents. All the accidents happened in cars made by Honda.

The defective airbags caused a recall of millions of cars globally, including 19 million in the U.S.
