Frankfurt Volkswagen engineers echoed the complainant that some VW, Audi and Porsche petrol engines can handle emissions tests. It was written in the nmeck-list of Bild am Sonntag, with reference to the internal documents and the svdk-verb. The Ministry of Transport later indicated that the information provided by the Bild am Sonntag was not new to the accused by the Federal Communications Commission (KBA).
If the bailout data were to be released, this could have brought a new dimension to the Volkswagen emissions scandal, worth EUR 27 billion (599 billion K) from the diesel engine for diesel emission testers, Reuters said.
Speaking to Volkswagen, the parent of Audi and Porsche, he said he would not comment on the likely explanation. He added that the car manufacturer has been heavily involved with the Federal Motor Vehicle Association in recent months and that nothing new is happening.
The ministry has not detected any fraud with a petrol engine
The car is being investigated because it deals with exhaust gas tests on diesel cars to show a lot of pollution and meet emission standards. According to the letter, petrol-driven vehicles could be manipulated with gearboxes and software, so that these vehicles showed CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.
The Ministry of Transport has stated that it has not yet seen the scams VW would have carried with a petrol engine. In 2015, Volkswagen was able to check whether more than 36,000 petrol engines were under control due to excessive emissions and only a minimal deviation from the expectations.
In Europe, cars have the same level of CO2 emissions, Reuters said.
The Volkswagen Group has earmarked up to around 11 million diesel cars worldwide in 2015, following accused Americans, to install a software engineer to manipulate emissions of nitrous oxide emissions. Skoda is also about 1.2 million cars in the Koda Auto division.
