Volkswagen (VLKAY) will spend $15.3 billion to settle consumer lawsuits and government allegations that it cheated on emissions tests in what lawyers are calling the largest auto-related class-action settlement in U.S. history.

The settlement breaks down into four main parts:

  • VW will pay just over $10 billion to either buy back or repair about 475,000 vehicles with cheating 2-liter diesel engines. The company will compensate owners with payments of $5,100 to $10,000, depending on the age of their vehicles.
  • The German automaker will also pay governments $2.7 billion for environmental mitigation.
  • It will spend another $2 billion for research on zero-emissions vehicles.
  • Volkswagen also settled with 44 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, which also sued the company, agreeing to pay about $603 million.

The scandal affects as many as 11 million Volkswagen vehicles worldwide. Models affected, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, are identified below:
