Audi and Skoda have confirmed the extent to which the Volkswagen Group’s emissions testing defeat device has been employed in their diesel vehicles.
Roughly 1.42 million of these cars were sold in Western Europe, 577,000 located in Germany, and around 13,000 in the USA.
The Czech brand has yet to provide a list of the affected vehicles, nor their distribution across countries.
Last week, Volkswagen, parent company to both Audi and Skoda, admitted that Volkswagen and its subsidiary brands had equipped 11 million EA189 diesel-engined cars with a defeat device that would allow it pass lab testing for emissions output.
Seat, the other mainstream car brand that’s likely to be swept up in the “dieselgate” affair, has yet to declare whether any of its vehicles are affected.
