U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco also agreed at a court hearing to grant preliminary approval to German auto supplier Robert Bosch GmbH's settlement to pay $327.5 million to U.S. diesel VW owners, Reuters reported.

Volkswagen could be forced to pay up to $4.04 billion if regulators don't approve fixes for all vehicles.

Breyer will hold a May 11 hearing on whether to grant final approval.
