Volkswagen will not cover the full cost of hardware retrofit

VW stated it will cover hardware retrofits for older diesel cars if its accepted by the owners.

On Tuesday, contradicting a deal announced by the German coalition parties, Volkswagen stated it is not prepared to cover the entire cost of hardware retrofits for older diesel vehicles in Germany.

“If hardware retrofits are accepted by customers, then we will participate (in the costs) to the extent agreed,” said the source.

Under the coalition parties’ deal, owners of older diesel cars living in German cities where the air is particularly polluted will have the option to choose between a hardware upgrade or trade-ins for their old diesel car.
