Volkswagen has told US regulators that emissions issues in larger luxury cars and SUVs extend to an additional 75,000 vehicles dating back to 2009, the US Environmental Protection Agency said yesterday.
The disclosure widened the scandal which had previously focused mainly on smaller-engined, mass-market cars and raised the possibility that engineers at both the Audi and VW brandscould have been involved in separate emissions schemes.
Earlier yesterday, the supervisory board of VW, Europe's biggest auto manufacturer, said it would cap spending on property, plant and equipment at around 12 billion euros (USD12.8
billion) next year, down about 8 percent on its previous plan of around 13 billion euros.
