Volkswagen finds another trick to reduce car emissionsOctober 11, 2020
The German company has found another trick to reduce car emissions.
Note that five years ago, a loud scandal erupted around Volkswagen AG. The company was convicted of fraudulent activities with the emission rate of diesel units. The cars were equipped with so-called bypass devices, which were supposed to reduce the level of emissions of harmful substances to the required value. After this information was declassified, the company nevertheless pleaded guilty and paid large sums of compensation and fines. Now, the automaker has found new tricks that can reduce emissions and are now legal.
It is known that we are talking about a delay in reducing the speed of the unit at the time of lowering the throttle valve. The moment the driver takes his foot off the gas pedal, the revs begin to drop with a slight delay. This functionality may not be to the liking of some drivers, as the increased revs make downshifting clumsy.
