The California Air Resources Board and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Friday announced approval of an emissions modification for a limited number of the Volkswagen 2.0 liter diesel vehicles with a so-called defeat device. The vehicles eligible for this modification are referred to as “Generation 3” and appeared for a single year only, in model year 2015.

In September 2015, Volkswagen representatives admitted to CARB and U.S. EPA the presence of a defeat device in 2.0 liter diesel passenger vehicles sold in model years 2009-2015. This device, in the form of a set of software commands, engaged the car’s emissions control system to deliver legal levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) when the car was being tested for emissions in the laboratory. Once on the open road and out of the lab, however, the defeat device compromised operation of the emissions control system resulting in excess emissions of NOx at levels well beyond legal limits. Volkswagen sold approximately a half-million of the affected diesel vehicles in the U.S. including about 71,000 in California. This modification applies to more than 10,000 of= those cars in California.

“This is one more step on the road to cleaning up the mess created by Volkswagen’s deception, but it is by no means the last step,” said CARB Chair Mary D. Nichols. “There are more modifications to come for other model years, and further penalties to be decided.”
