Re: VW accused of 'rigging' emissions tests

£35K is prime territory for shifting in great numbers on Lease/PCP or fleet.

My guess is they won't be able to build them fast enough when they come out here.

Quote from The Sun:


Ministers are drafting tough new rules to slap unlimited fines on car giants who cheat diesel emission rules in the wake of the VW scandal.

The new legislation will make it a criminal offence to fix lab tests - and will go “above and beyond” current EU rules.

The move comes just days after claims VW tested toxic fumes on live monkeys before admitting to faking NOx levels on millions of diesel cars worldwide three years ago.

VW was hit with a £15 billion-worth of fines after ‘Dieselgate’ but the UK only asked the German carmaker to contribute £1 million towards a series of tests.

Government sources yesterday said the new rules would plug a huge hole in the current law which restricts the action the UK can take on imported products.

Transport Minister Jesse Norman said: “We continue to take the unacceptable actions of Volkswagen extremely seriously, and we are framing new measures to crack down on emissions in the future.
Good to see some real action at last.

Re: VW accused of 'rigging' emissions tests

They have all been doing this for years and it would be better for the whole automotive industry to just come clean in one single statement representing all manufacturers then this drip drip approach with some companies hoping they can blag it out.

Quote from Sun Motors:

Volkswagen buyers could be waiting until next February to take delivery of their new motor after just half of the firm's new models met new emissions standards.

Under the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), all new cars sold from Sept 1 are required to fulfil tough new regulations.

But according to Volkswagen’s head of sales and marketing in Germany, Thomas Zahn, just seven out of 14 models sold in Europe were certified before the Saturday cut-off.

Zahn told journalists in a conference call last week that new testing could "take two to three times longer than in the past" - normal delivery takes two-three months, and four months for overseas deliveries.

The popular Golf is one of the variants yet to pass certification, which could leave thousands of customers frustrated as they wait for delivery of the UK's second-most popular car.
I suppose having been relying on cheating the tests, development on cleaner engines by the German group is behind the curve.

Re: VW accused of 'rigging' emissions tests

I remain totally flabbergasted that any VW product has any popularity now in the UK. Those scheming trickster scheisters have knowingly contributed to pollution that is now known to kill people or give them shorter lives.
