Further retrofit programs for type V6/V8 engines
For many months, AUDI AG has been intensively checking all diesel concepts for possible discrepancies and retrofit potentials. A systematic review process for all engine and gear variants has been underway since 2016. This was done in close cooperation with the authorities, which were provided with detailed reports, especially the German Federal Ministry of Transport and the KBA. In this context, AUDI AG announced on July 21, 2017 that it was going to improve the emissions performance of up to 850 thousand vehicles across Europe via service measures. The retrofit package comprises voluntary measures and to a small extent measures directed by the authorities; these are measures taken within the scope of a recall, which were proposed by AUDI AG itself, reported to the KBA and taken up and ordered by the latter.
