I assume that VW are expert at making diesel engines. So are other companies. I expect that all engine manufacturers routinely examine comtetitors' engines extremely carefully and learn from what they find. So it must be difficult to achieve far better performance than your competitors unless you have patent protection for some breakthrough.

It seems that one (at least) of VW's engines was very much worse in emissions than the regulations allowed.

None of their competitors have been caught yet with the same problem.

So, do all the competitors have some patented technology that gives them a huge advantage?
