Volkswagen submits recall plan to US regulators.

Bloomberg Business (2/2, Hull, Plungis, 2.92M) reports that Volkswagen submitted its draft recall plan to the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board on Tuesday, covering approximately “85,000 VW, Audi and Porsche vehicles with 3-liter diesel engines.” CARB said in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday, “VW has stated this plan is intended to remedy the presence of one or more defeat devices in 2009-2015 model year 3.0 liter diesel vehicles” and “agrees these devices resulted in excess emissions and other instances of noncompliance in the affected vehicles.” The EPA and CARB have said they will review the plan. Reuters (2/2, Shepardson) reports that CARB last month rejected VW’s plan to fix 482,000 2.0 liter cars for being “substantially deficient.” The company was granted permission to begin recalls in Europe last week. The AP (2/2) reports similarly.
