The German carmaker is offering a retrofit emissions software programme to up to 850,000 cars with V-6 and V-8 TDI engines EU5 and EU6 in Europe and other markets.

A total of up to 850,000 cars worldwide with six-cylinder and eight-cylinder diesel engines (V-6/V-8 TDI, EU5/EU6) will get new software. This will further improve their emissions in real driving conditions beyond the current legal requirements. The action will take place in close consultation with Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). In this way, Audi intends to reduce overall emissions, especially in urban areas. The service also applies to the Porsche and Volkswagen models that are fitted with the same types of engines and will be carried out free of charge for all customers.

Audi has said that it is convinced that this programme will counteract possible bans on vehicles with diesel engines and, showing its faith in oil-burners, it said that: “With their low fuel consumption, diesel engines help to achieve the ambitious CO2 targets in Europe”, which is another reason why [it] has decided to offer this retrofit program.
