Volkswagen says US approves sale of modified diesel vehicles

30 Mar, 2017 9:00 am

CALIFORNIA – Volkswagen AG said the US Environmental Protection Agency has approved its request to sell up to 67,000 diesel vehicles from the 2015 model year, including about 12,000 currently in dealer inventory with approved emissions modifications.

The vehicles in inventory were held when the company issued a stop sale in September 2015, Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan told Reuters.

Ginivan said the company was finalizing details of the program.

The EPA approved a fix for about 70,000 Volkswagen diesel vehicles in January. An EPA spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter. -Reuters
