Like it wasn’t enough what the Volkswagen Group did with the previous emissions cheats scandal, new information reveals the 3.0-liter diesel engines in the Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen vehicles might have emission cheating software to trick the emissions control system.
The software works on shutting down the emissions control system after 22 minutes, which gives the vehicle 2 extra minutes to pass the emissions test which usually lasts for about 20 minutes. The news came in via Reuters and until now, no one from the Volkswagen group denied nor gave any information about the newfound information.
The reports are saying that the cars affected include the Porsche Cayenne, the Audi Q7 and the VW Touareg SUV. The U.S. authorities have been in-touch with Audi representative who are to blame for the software to schedule a meeting by August 10.
