http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/20...of-cheating-software-developed-by-volkswagen/TTAC via Reuters said:Reuters reported that sources within Volkswagen and its ongoing investigation have said the automaker created multiple versions of its ?defeat device? to cheat emissions tests.The news agency said a manager within Volkswagen and an official close to the external investigation ordered by the automaker have revealed the multiple programs, which were developed for four different engine types.
If true, the multiple emissions programs could indicate a widespread cheating program ? stretching nearly a decade ? that could have needed funding to continue, which would be in stark contrast to the ?rogue engineer? explanation offered by executives so far.
over here there was another development that said EA288 euro5 engines or others might be affected as well. VW concluded after 8 hours of speculation that no, EA288 even in euro5 spec does not come with cheating software.This story has gone remarkably quiet, at least in the UK media.
And this was also confirmed by German investigators. I forgot to grab the link, but VW and the German regulators assure that the majority of cars will be fixed by software updates.over here there was another development that said EA288 euro5 engines or others might be affected as well.
