VW delays recall of vehicles to remove ‘defeat devices’
The Dollar Business Bureau
After failing to get the required approval from the regulatory body to take out the device designed to trick pollution tests, German car manufacturer Volkswagen (VW) on Monday said the company was delaying the recall of millions of vehicles all over the world.
The company has still not been able to obtain an approval for recalling VW Golf, its best-selling model.
Volkswagen, Europe's largest car company, was forced to recall cars from all over the world after the company confessed that up to 11 million diesel vehicles had been installed with ‘defeat devices’, intended to cheat worldwide emissions standards, including Europe and Britain.
The crisis, last year, led the company’s head Martin Winterkorn to quit, and Matthias Müller, former chairman of Porsche had taken over as the new company chief executive.
