TSC continues to monitor volkswagen

The Transport Select Committee says the Volkswagen Group NOx emissions scandal is an “ongoing issue” on which it is continuing to keep a close watch.

Volkswagen Group is believed to have so far fixed around 160,000 of the 1.1 million cars fitted with the software – 508,276 Volkswagens, 393,450 Audis, 131,569 Škodas and 76,773 Seats – despite beginning the rectification programme at the start of the year.

Volkswagen Group UK managing director Paul Willis told the TSC during its inquiry that the manufacturer wanted to complete the fixes by the end of this year.

However, it ran into problems getting approval from German regulators for its solution which has caused the delays.

TSC chair Louise Ellman said: “The matter is far from resolved, but I think that our actions have made the Government become much more involved in it.

“We’re not satisfied that they’ve done enough and we think that our minister should be much more involved. It’s an ongoing issue.”
