VW says only 36,000 cars to be affected by false emissions


Volkswagen today have said that they understated fuel usage and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of far fewer cars than originally expected “Only a small number of the model variants of new cars will have the CO2 figure slightly adjusted”.

It is believed that the number of affected cars will be around 36,000 vehicles. Last month they said they had falsified fuel usage and CO2 emissions in about 800,000 cars sold mainly in Europe, and wa sexpecting costs of at least €2 billion – including compensation payments to customers.
