The US Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, has claimed today that VW’s current diesel emissions scandal isn’t just limited to the 4 cylinder diesel engines. Reports today show data that reveals major violations in the 3.0l 6 cylinder engines as well. This new revelation could add at least 10,000 vehicles to the already staggering number. Volkswagen has denied the claims, however, saying they are working with American regulators to clarify their findings. They claim the software in question was simply not correctly or adequately described in their report to the EPA during testing.
The EPA, however, isn’t taking the report lightly. They will be continue to investigate the case, claiming that VW has again failed in their responsibility to Americans. The list of cars included covers some of the top models in the family of Volkswagen vehicles. SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne Diesel, Audi Q7, Q5, A8, A8 L, A6, A7 Quattros and the Volkswagen Touareg. All models are the TDI variants, gasoline engines remain unaffected.
