An internal evaluation in the
Volkswagen Group has revealed that approximately five million Volkswagen
Passenger Cars brand vehicles are affected worldwide. Certain models and model
years of these vehicles (such as the sixth generation Volkswagen Golf, the
seventh generation Volkswagen Passat and the first generation Volkswagen
Tiguan) are equipped exclusively with type EA 189 diesel engines.
As previously announced, all
new Volkswagen Passenger Car brand vehicles that fulfill the EU6 norm valid
throughout Europe are not affected. This therefore also includes the current
Golf, Passat and Touran models, a press statement from the company said.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand stressed, "We are working at full speed on
a technical solution that we will present to partners, to our customers and to
the public as swiftly as possible. Our aim is to inform our customers as
quickly as possible, so that their vehicles comply fully with regulations. I
assure you that Volkswagen will do everything humanly possible to win back the
trust of our customers, the dealerships and the public."

brand will inform all markets worldwide how many of vehicles are affected
locally. We are working intensively on remedial measures in close coordination

safe and roadworthy, the release concluded.
