Volkswagen denies using cheat software on 3.0 litre diesel engines

Volkswagen denies using cheat software on 3.0 litre diesel engines

In response to an announcement from the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in America that the 3.0-litre V6 diesel from Volkswagen group also has an emission cheating software, the German carmaker has issued a statement denying the same.

The EPA has reported that the engines of the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg, 2015 Porsche Cayenne, Audi A6 Quattro, A8L and Q5 had up to nine times higher nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and affects close to 10,000 cars in US. However, Volkswagen has now issued the below statement refuting the claim.

“The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) informed Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft on Monday that vehicles with V6 TDI engines had a software function which had not been adequately described in the application process. Volkswagen AG wishes to emphasise that no software has been installed in the 3-litre V6 diesel power units to alter emissions characteristics in a forbidden manner. Volkswagen will cooperate fully with the EPA to clarify this matter in its entirety." 

The same V6 diesel engine powers the Audi A6, A8, Q5, Q7 and Porsche Cayenne in India. Only after the investigation in the US will we know if there will be any recall in this regard.
