The investigation, which is being conducted by lawfirm Jones Day, is at an advanced stage and is due to be completed in the fourth quarter, the company said in a statement.

VW said it expected to release the findings from the probe once a final deal has been reached with the United States Department of Justice.

On Thursday Volkswagen said it agreed on a framework deal with the Justice Department, the state of California, the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Federal Trade Commission as well as lawyers for car owners who filed class action civil lawsuits.
