I mean, yes, in that it's a lot more than they've provisioned for (EUR 6.7bn), but they explicitly stated that that figure didn't cover litigation, and it seems like the non-litigation costs are going to be lower than expected. It seems to be at the top end of analysts' expectations, but not massively over. In context, VW's pre-provision operating profit last quarter (up to the end of September, so before the full impact on sales was felt) was EUR 3.2bn. It's a lot of money, but the company throws off a lot of cash and it has EUR 23bn of cash equivalent assets on hand.
Rather blatant politics with the filing in Michigan.
