Volkswagen: Software Update Sufficient For Majority Of TDI Models

A software update is sufficient to correct the exhaust emissions for the majority of Volkswagen and Audi models affected by the emissions scandal, says Volkswagen AG. In some instances, additional hardware upgrades might be necessary.

"In many instances a software update will be sufficient. Some vehicles, however, will also require hardware modifications. We will keep our customers constantly informed about the measures and arrange workshop appointments," said CEO Mr. Matthias Müller, who added that details of the corrective measures will be made public after it gets the necessary approvals from the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA).

Mr. Muller acknowledged that the corrective measures are expected to have a huge impact on the company’s financial standings, something which he admits is not possible to quantify at this point in time.
