Porsche to recall Cayenne and Macan diesel

Porsche to recall Cayenne and Macan diesel

- Recall to be made after cheating software for emission control was found recently 

- 52,831 units of the Macan and 6,755 units of the Cayenne affected 

- Porsche will soon recall the affected cars in Europe, adding to the VW Group’s massive diesel gate scandal

It looks like Porsche will soon have to recall diesel versions of the Cayenne and the Macan in Europe. The news comes after Germany’s auto industry regulator, the KBA, found the engines running illegal software functions. 

Nearly 60,000 units of the SUVs apparently include the software that could reduce emissions control for smog-inducing nitrogen oxides. Porsche so far hasn’t released an official statement on the matter. Nonetheless, the recall will include 52,831 units of the Macan featuring the three-litre V6 and 6,755 units of the Cayenne with the 4.2-litre V8. 

This has resulted in yet another hindrance in the VW Group’s efforts to end the diesel gate scandal that came to light back in September 2015. As we know, the diesel engines used in Porsches are supplied by sister brand Audi, though interestingly Porsche had earlier informed German regulators about the "irregularities" it found in emissions tests. The mandatory recall was first reported by German weekly magazine Der Spiegel.
