Volkswagen Passenger Cars CEO Dr. Herbert Diess has announced they are "working at full speed on a solution" for the problematic diesel-powered cars.

 

Based on an internal evaluation, Volkswagen has discovered there are around five million VW-branded passenger cars affected all over the world. In addition, some models and model years of these cars are powered exclusively by the now very popular type EA 189 diesel engines, with some examples being the sixth-gen Golf, seventh-gen Passat and the first-gen Tiguan. Volkswagen underlines the fact that all Euro 6-compliant TDI models do not come with the "defeat device."

 

According to the Dr. Herbert Diess, man in charge of the passenger cars at Volkswagen, "we are working at full speed on a technical solution that we will present to partners, to our customers and to the public as swiftly as possible. Our aim is to inform our customers as quickly as possible, so that their vehicles comply fully with regulations. I assure you that Volkswagen will do everything humanly possible to win back the trust of our customers, the dealerships and the public."

VW will soon release information for all markets regarding the exact number of cars affected locally and they say "remedial measures" are being developed in collaboration with the certification authorities. Volkswagen mentions owners of these vehicles should not worry as their cars remain "technically safe and roadworthy."
