are Still coming in news from Germany regarding the scandal of the TDI of Volkswagen. If last Friday I confirmábamos that already had a solution for the models Volkswagen Passat, CC and EOS, up to 800,000 automobiles, today we can disclose that because there is a solution to 1.1 million more vehicles, including Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Solution that will solve the problem of the vehicles equipped with engine 2.0 TDI EA 189 and models Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Passat, Volkswagen Tiguan, Volkswagen Caddy and SEAT Exeo, as well as the Audi models affected in Europe.
The solution, again, has been approved by the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA), the federal authority on the subject in Germany. And implies certain adjustments of the software that has ratified the own KBA would not affect consumption, performance, or sound, of the engines involved. In short, this is a solution technique that requires only a reprogramming of the software to remove the code that sparked the scandal, and to adjust their operation to meet the emission levels for which it was approved.
Currently, Germany has already approved the technical solution for the 2.5 million vehicles in Europe.
Volkswagen has also announced that those affected will be informed from now on of this notice, to make an appointment with the workshop and proceeding to a repair that should be solved in a matter of minutes. As Volkswagen already announced in November of last year, this solution can be applied in less than an hour.
with respect To the rest of the engines we still have no news. Last week Volkswagen has already announced that models equipped with the engine 1.2 TDI EA 189 will still have to wait, delaying a patch that should already be underway on these dates.
