After acknowledging it used special software to cheat U.S. emissions guidelines in certain diesel passenger cars earlier this month, Volkswagen has announced it is working on a fix for the affected models that will bring them within compliance of the law.
In a press release on Friday, head of Volkswagen’s passenger car operations Dr. Herbert Diess, assured customers the automaker is “working at full speed on a technical solution that we will present to partners, to our customers and to the public as swiftly as possible.” Now, a new report from Reuters has quoted newly Volkswagen Group CEO Matthias Mueller in saying an announcement in regards to the fix is just a “few days” away.
Also expected from Volkswagen is an announcement in regards to how many cars and exactly which models are affected worldwide. Yesterday it emerged that several Audi vehicles in the U.S. and Europe may also be affected, along with certain European market Skoda vehicles.
For now, concerned owners should keep an eye on Volkswagen’s recently set up informational website, vwdieselinfo.com, for further announcements from the automaker.
