However, VW is/was being forced to put their efforts into electric vehicles and infrastructure. I'm not saying that their diesel future is covered in soot, but the market for North America is fairly cloudy.

Maybe not if this device cleans up like it says it does. It would make a great headline: US National Labs cleans up VW's environmental mess. Billions put to good use.

Very few would care. It's not a scandal so at best it will make the front page below the fold. More likely on page 2.

VW dropped diesels and is pushing forward with their apple iD vehicles.
The All electric plugin bunch took over. So it won't make the news.

However bringing CAT, Cummins, International, MAC, Detroit, and others to a much lower emissions level and better fuel economy would make front page news.

Then seeing it adapted and adopted by Cummins, Duramax and VM Motori to meet the road light trucks would be a second win.
