VW admits to more cheating on 3-liter diesels

on Sat Nov 21, 2015 10:47 am
Volkswagen has admitted to US regulators that its emissions cheating extended to thousands more luxury cars and SUVs than originally thought. Deceptive software had been installed on vehicles going back as far as 2009.

Germany's largest carmaker said Friday that around 85,000 of its 3.0-liter V-6 diesel cars and SUVs needed software upgrades to bring them into compliance with environmental protection standards.

The admission was significant because until now, Volkswagen has dismissed assertions by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California's Air Resources Board (ARB) that at least 10,000 of its Audi, Porsche and VW cars and SUVs were emitting more nitrogen oxide than allowed.

Volkswagen did admit to some cheating with its larger luxury vehicles, saying that engines from the 2014 to 2016 model years contained software capable of discerning between laboratory testing and real-world driving.
