Volkswagen’s emissions ‘cheat’ software scandal: UK sales slump 10%

Sales of Volkswagens have dipped by nearly 10% in October 2015, it emerged today as the UK’s new car sales figures were released. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said that VW sold 13,970 vehicles last month, down from 15,495 in the same month last year, as buyers stayed away in the confusion over #dieselgate. But in the first 10 months of 2015, the company remains nearly 7% up.

Earlier in November, Volkswagen became embroiled in a fresh raft of emissions ‘defeat device’ allegations, with the US Environmental Protection Agency alleging that 3.0-litre diesel engines in a variety of current VW, Audi and Porsche are fitted with software capping their nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions during testing but allowing levels up to nine times greater during ordinary driving. What’s more, VW has also admitted it has uncovered ‘irregularities’ in how it has measured CO2 levels in around 800,000 VWs, Audis, Skodas and Seats in Europe, a development which could cost the company a further €2 billion (£1.4bn) to rectify.

Our aim is to inform our customers as quickly as possible, so that their vehicles comply fully with regulations. I assure you that Volkswagen will do everything humanly possible to win back the trust of our customers, the dealerships and the public.’
