More news surrounding Volkswagen’s diesel emission scandal. According to some news citing reports from a German weekly newspaper, engineering and electronics giant, Bosch, is said to be responsible for producing the software of the ‘Defeat Device’, but supposedly developed it only for testing purposes.
The reports said that Bosch had cautioned Volkswagen, back in 2007, that it would be illegal to use the engine management software on production cars. It seems the caution was ignored.
There was another warning, according to the report, that came in 2011 from its own engineers regarding the software.
Now, not only the 2.0 Litre TDI engines are being investigated on but also Volkswagen’s 1.6 Litre TDI, 1.2 Litre TDI and the 3.0 Litre TDI may be put under the microscope, involving its other car brands including Audi, Skoda, SEAT and Porsche.
