[WOLFSBURG] Volkswagen needs to win back trust lost through its cheating of US diesel emissions tests that may affect 11 million vehicles worldwide, its chairman said on Thursday.

"Winning back trust is our top priority and our top challenge," Hans Dieter Poetsch told a news conference at the German company's headquarters in Wolfsburg.

"The last two and a half months have been unprecedented for the VW group," he said, referring to the turmoil at Europe's biggest carmaker since it admitted to cheating the tests on Sept. 18.

"We will be relentless in seeking to establish who was responsible," he said. "Everything is on the table. Nothing will be swept under the carpet."
