Having fixed about 50,000 vehicles so far, Volkswagen has received approval to fix another 460,000 diesel vehicles with cheat software. The German automaker recently said that it managed to get the national regulatory approval, bringing the total number of fixed vehicles to over 5 million units.
Volkswagen, as we know, is currently facing the aftermath of the mega diesel emissions scandal that ultimately affected millions of vehicles in the US and Europe. In order to set things right and regain assurance among its customers, VW dealers have started fixing the affected cars.
Dealers have already attended around 50,000 diesel vehicles across Europe since the start of this year. VW is hoping to fix most of the affected cars within 2016. That said, there would still be cars that would not be fixed until 2017 given that that VW still hasn’t got hold of the technical fixes for cars affected in the US. The company is presently testing hardware and software fixes that could help it avoid the pain of buying back around 475,000 cars in the US.
