On July 25, 2017, a putative class action was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against Volkswagen, Audi AG, BMW AG, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Porsche AG, alleging violations of federal antitrust laws. Specifically, the class action complaint alleges that, beginning in 2006, the carmakers conspired "to share commercially-sensitive information and reach unlawful agreements" in order "to impose a German automobile premium on consumers premised on superior German engineering, while secretly stunting incentives to innovate." On July 28, 2017, a similar complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, and a second similar complaint was filed in the District of New Jersey. On news of the antitrust lawsuits, Volkswagen's share price has fallen sharply.
