Tests were conducted by the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, which is based in New Mexico.
The report claimed that in 2014 EUGT put 10 monkeys in an air-tight chamber and exposed them to fumes from several cars, including a diesel-powered VW Beetle.
In 2015 VW admitted having fitted "cheat" devices in the USA that made its engines appear less polluting than they actually were.
Unbeknownst to the researchers, the Beetle used in the experiment was fitted with Dieselgate code, which allowed the auto to detect a laboratory emissions testing situation and reduce its output of harmful oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Still, the study was deemed inconclusive and was never published. Further reports from German media outlets said on Monday that the research group also tested the effects of diesel exhaust on 25 people at the University of Aachen in Germany.
The German government also condemned the tests. "Mr. Steg has declared that he will assume full responsibility". "We're convinced the scientific methods chosen then were wrong". VW apologized on Twitter, adding that it "explicitly distances itself clearly from all forms of animal abuse". Animal testing contradicts our own ethical standards.

The E.U.G.T, which hired scientists to conduct studies rather than carrying out the research itself, shut down a year ago amid controversy over its work.
The BMW Group and Bosch have not yet issued an official statement.
Within just a few days, the news has splurged into one big PR disaster for the German vehicle giants, especially with the 2015 Volkswagon emissions test cheat scandal still fresh in the memories of consumers. At BMW, the only model left that's available with a diesel is the 3 Series.

Spokesman Hazem Qassem said on Tuesday that Imad al-Alami had been unconscious since the January 9 shooting. Hamas claimed after the incident that al-Alami was wounded while he was checking his handgun.
She said she was "appalled" that scientists had "made themselves available as willing supporters of such despicable experiments". The idea behind the test was to prove the newest diesel technology had solved diesel pollution problems.
