VOLKSWAGEN today denied another version of its latest diesel engine has also been fitted with emission test cheating software, known as a ‘defeat device’.
A statement from the German car-maker said ‘no software constituting an improper defeat device as defined in law is installed in vehicles with EA288 EU5 as well as EU6-engines in the European Union’.
VW has previously admitted that the cheat software was installed on the EA189 engine, affecting up to 11 million vehicles worldwide.
It also confirmed that nearly 1.2 million UK vehicles are affected, consisting of around 508,000 Volkswagen cars, 390,000 Audis, 132,000 Skodas, 80,000 VW commercial vehicles and 77,000 Seats.
