Technical measures for the EA 189 diesel engines affected presented to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority

  • Next step in solving the NOx exhaust emissions issue in Europe
  • Minor hardware measures for the 1.6 TDI engines
  • 2.0 TDI engines only need a software update
  • Target: no adverse effects on fuel consumption and performance

The clarification and solution of the diesel issue is progressing. The Volkswagen Group has presented specific technical measures for the EA 189 engines affected with a displacement of 1.6 and 2.0 litres to the Federal Motor Transport Authority. This means that correction measures have been fixed for the majority of the vehicles affected. In the development of the solutions, the focus was on maximum customer-friendliness. After implementation of the technical measures, the vehicles will comply with the applicable emissions standards. The final technical solution for the 1.2-litre diesel engine will be presented to the Federal Motor Transport Authority at the end of the month and is expected to comprise a software update.
