Earlier in the case of “dieselgate” was convicted one of the top managers of VW.

German regulator KBA yesterday announced the crossover review of the Volkswagen Touareg, equipped with a three-liter turbodiesel, as it has two illegal devices to control emissions. The German manufacturer confirmed the new revocable company for 57,600 units of the turbodiesel crossover. As reported by Reuters, 25,800 of them travel on the roads of Germany.

All the Volkswagen Touareg crossovers that have come under review are in compliance with the standard of Euro 6 turbodiesels, which will come into force from 2020. Recall that the US and German regulators found that the three-liter turbodiesel Volkswagen had a programmed control unit that activated the program to reduce harmful emissions only when it was connected to the diagnostic equipment

“Two devices for switching off the emission control system were discovered when inspecting the turbodiesel Touareg, certified by the Federal Road Transport Authority,” confirms the representative of the KBA regulator.

Recall that in July this year, German authorities have already forced the car group VW Group to withdraw 22,000 Porsche Cayenne turbodiesel crossovers in Europe after the discovery of similar emission control devices.

In total, with the so-called “dieselgate” scandal, diesel versions of the Volkswagen Touareg, Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne crossovers are connected.
