Volkswagen India issues statement on global emission issue

Volkswagen India issues statement on global emission issue

Volkswagen India has issued a statement on the emission issue affecting the automaker in the American market. Last month, it had been revealed by an independent NGO that the German automaker had installed a defeat device in the cars powered by their 2.0-litre diesel engine. This helped them achieve the specified emission standard without actually lowering the emission norms.

The statement from the company reads, “Volkswagen Group India representatives have met Government of India – Ministry of Heavy Industries and ARAI on October 29 and have updated them on the evaluations so far on the ongoing emissions issue with reference to India.

Since there is a complex combination of several brands, various models, different engine variants and gearboxes as well as different model years that need to be analysed, establishing detailed facts is taking a longer time.

Volkswagen Group India will present its results from the evaluations by the end of November 2015. During this period, the company representatives will stay in regular touch with ARAI to keep the authorities updated on the analysis. The next steps will depend on the findings from these evaluations. Meanwhile, Volkswagen Group India would like to assure that all vehicles in the customers’ hands remain technically safe and roadworthy."
