The German auto giant has stopped deliveries of the latest generation Golf compact hatchback due to a software problem.

The problem was noticed in the software (software), which allows emergency calls – a function that has been included in the European complex of requirements since 2018. Volkswagen said it would soon decide whether to launch a revocable campaign or software update.

The manufacturer delayed the start of sales of the new Golf in the EU until this year due to technical errors caused by the installation of advanced digital technologies and the development of software for updating over the wireless network (OTA). The new features were supposed to make Golf more attractive as more and more customers are switching to crossovers, SUVs or premium hatchbacks.

Volkswagen is currently analyzing how many vehicles are affected by this issue. The software is expected to be updated June 15-21. Golf hatchbacks already built will be stored at the Wolfsburg plant.
