EU to Volkswagen: More CO2 Emissions Details Within 10 Days

VW logoVolkswagen has 10 days to provide the European Union with details about the “irregularities” related to carbon-dioxide emissions from its vehicles.

The Wall Street Journal reports the European Commission on Monday sent the automaker a “sternly-worded letter” demanding Volkswagen provide “further clarifications” on the VW cars’ CO2 emissions.

Last week VW admitted that even more cars — some 800,000 vehicles from the VW Group — are involved in the emissions scandal and this number includes gas-powered cars, not just diesel. The automaker issued a statement saying that the VW internal investigation found “irregularities … when determining type approval CO2 levels.” It said about 800,000 vehicles could be affected and “the majority of the vehicles concerned have diesel engines.”

VW estimates this will cost the company about $2 billion euros.

In September, the EPA said Volkswagen admitted to using “defeat devices” — software that circumvents emissions testing for certain air pollutants — in about 500,000 diesel vehicles.
