As Road and Track notes, these are considered to be the automaker’s smaller investments because the cars and motorbikes are made in limited quantity and only serve a specific market. Another alternative is that Volkswagen can sell its holdings in MAN, a supplier of ship engines, generators and heavy-duty industrial components. Even so, it has been estimated that the automaker might owe upwards of 78 billion euros in assorted damages, so selling the abovementioned could just be a drop in the ocean of financial debt.
