The U.

S. Department of Justice indicted four employees of Audi AG who lived and worked in Germany for their alleged roles in a conspiracy to skirt U.S. emissions tests for model year 2009-15 Audi vehicles equipped with a 3.0-liter diesel engine and sold in the United States.

The indictments were filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Detroit. A spokesman for the court said hearings in the case have not been set.

Indicted were Richard Bauder, the former head of Audi's diesel engine development department in Neckarsulm, Germany; Axel Eiser, head of Audi's engine development division in Ingolstadt, Germany, in 2008-13; Stefan Knirsch, who succeeded Eiser in Ingolstadt in 2013 but left the company in 2016; and Carsten Nagel, head of engine registration in Neckarsulm.
