The German carmaker could spend another $1 billion to settle claims in the U.S. over its diesel emissions scandal, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday citing a person familiar with the matter.

The new bill would add to the roughly $10 billion deal reached last summer with U.S. authorities to compensate more than 475,000 vehicles with a 2-liter engines. Both sides have yet to reach an agreement over 3-liter diesel vehicles that were also found to violate the emission laws.
