Last week, the company announced that Michael Horn, CEO of the USA branch of Volkswagen, would resign and leave the company, effective immediately. It's not clear if Horn knew about the diesel scandal or not, but he was popular with US dealers, who are reportedly furious at his firing as well as what they see as mismanagement from Volkswagen's corporate heads in Europe. VW was reportedly considering creating a new position that would oversee Horn's activity in North America, and wanted to move him to a new position. Volkswagen's corporate management also reportedly clashed with Horn over his plan to offer VW owners $1,000 in gift cards, and disliked his plans for the American market in general.

AP Volkswagen of America CEO Michael Horn testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, USA.

...
Michael Horn, Volkswagen's (VW) top US executive, was ushered out of his job for clashing too often with the German headquarters as he tried to keep sales afloat before and during the company's diesel emissions-cheating scandal, a top dealer said.
Horn, the US president and CEO, was the automaker's public face when the scandal broke in September, calmly enduring a two-hour grilling from a congressional subcommittee.
...
It also drew anger from US dealers who fear that the company will back out of promises made under Horn.
VW is negotiating with US and California regulators to fix nearly 600,000 cars sold in the US with software designed to cheat on emissions tests. The cars emit as much as 40 times the allowable standard for nitrogen oxide, which can cause human respiratory problems. VW has admitted the cheating and to have to recall most of the cars for repairs.
Horn, who was upset that VW brought in an executive to be above him in North America, told VW employees that he had decided to leave, according to a former employee. The ex-employee, who communicates with former co-workers, didn't want to be identified for fear of retaliation. He also confirmed the clashes with management.
Horn also differed with superiors at VW's headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany, about vehicles to be sold in the US and what prices to sell them. Horn wanted more SUVs and cars suited to the American market, but his superiors often disagreed,
The dealer council said in a statement that during his two years on the job, Horn was able to secure commitments of better products for the US and repair fractured relations with dealers "which had been eroded for decades by failed promises of success from Volkswagen AG".
