At last month's court hearing where Volkswagen announced a deal had been reached with the U.S. Government on the 2.0L TDI engine, we learned the two were still in negotiations over the 3.0L TDI V6. Now it seems that issue is coming to a close.
Bloomberg has learned from sources that Volkswagen and U.S. Government are ironing out technical details and reviewing test results of a possible software fix for the engine. It is said that a new catalytic converter could be part of this as well. Sources go on to say a that the timing of a final agreement depends on a broader settlement of the diesel emission scandal.
The 3.0L TDI is primarily used in a number of Audi products (A6, A7, A8, Q5, and Q7), along with the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg.
A court hearing will be held next week to get a status update on the talks.
