Volkswagen starts implementing technical measures for EA189 diesel engines in Europe
In December 2015, the Volkswagen Group presented specific technical measures to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) for the EA189 engines affected by the NOx issue. As agreed, Volkswagen began implementing the measures at the end of January for engines with a capacity of 2.0 litres. Over the next few months, the measures will also be implemented on the engines with 1.2 and 1.6-litre capacities. Today, German Minister of Transport, Alexander Dobrindt, and Chairman of the Board of Management Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand, Dr Herbert Diess, met in Berlin and in the workshop of a Volkswagen dealership found out more about the practical implementation of the software update for the 2.0 TDI engine. Volkswagen is starting with the Amarok, with the Passat to follow shortly.
