South Korea to probe more Volkswagen cars

  • South Korean authorities are set to examine more vehicles manufactured by German carmaker Volkswagen following an announcement that some of its larger models were also found to have rigged emission results, officials said on Tuesday. Since last month, the South Korean government has been conducting its own test to see if the same software was used to fake emissions figures for the cars sold here. A government official said that a similar probe will be carried out into the 3.0-litre models after the ongoing investigation into the 2-litre models is completed by mid-November. (Source: IANS)
