Has been a fall movidito in regards to scandals that affect the world of the automobile. After the famous Dieselgate, Volkswagen returned in the spotlight due to some of their models also had falsified CO2 emissions. This fact was published by the German Group in November and admitted that a few 800,000 vehicles would be involved.
however, after a month of investigation along with the Federal Authority to Transport Motor (KBA), has come to the conclusion that the vehicles affected are many less they initially thought. In the latest press release from Volkswagen says that only 36.000 units exhibit a significant deviation in emissions and fuel consumption.
This means that finally only the 0.5% of the annual production the brand would have this problem. The official data will be released this christmas, until then the brand claims that this diversion is about a few grams of CO2 each kilometer. This would result in an increase of the average fuel consumption of between 0.1 and 0.2 l/100km in the cycle NEDC, so that customers would not be practically affected or would have to make modifications.
therefore the negative economic impact, encryption around 2,000 million euros would also be significantly reduced. In summary, the extensive list of affected that we published a month ago, has decreased to be only the nine models. Currently only have posted the vehicles of the Volkswagen, later Audi, Skoda, and SEAT to reveal its list.
