German carmaker Volkswagen has been ordered by US regulators to pull half a million cars because of a device that disguises pollution levels.

The "defect device" allows cars to pass lab testing even though they actually emit 40 times the emissions standard.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has been taking a more aggressive stance on car pollution and violations of the country's Clean Air Act.

The recall could cost the carmaker up to 18 billion dollars.
