  1. It was expected that Volkswagen would begin repairing diesel vehicles with the illegal software in the first few months of 2016. But after the California Air Resources Board rejected Volkswagen's fix this week, the timeframe for when vehicles will be fixed is unknown. On Tuesday, CARB said Volkswagen plan were "incomplete, substantially deficient and fall far short of meeting the legal requirements to return these vehicles” to compliance. Speaking at the Automotive News World Congress, Chris Grundler, director of the EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality said his team agreed with CARB's decision. “Both CARB and EPA continue to insist on an expeditious fix that will not only bring these vehicles into compliance but also do so in a way that doesn’t create any adverse impacts for owners. We’re not there yet,” said Grundler. Grundler went on to say Volkswagen's proposal fell short in a number of areas and that more effort is needed. “I do want to say that this is not a political matter. It’s a serious matter, the deficiencies cover a range of areas. I would not characterize it as dotting i’s or crossing t’s. We agreed with CARB’s assessment … but we’re going to keep talking.” Grundler's comments came before a meeting between EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Volkswagen CEO Matthias Mueller and brand chief Herbert Diess to work out a deal on a possible fix. The two parties emerged without a deal, but both were very appreciated about the meeting and work towards a fix would continue. Source: Automotive News (Subscription Required)
  2. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has given Volkswagen a reprieve on the diesel emission scandal. According to Reuters, CARB has extended the deadline to approve or reject Volkswagen's fix for the nearly 500,000 vehicles with the cheating 2.0L TDI to January 14, 2016. The reason for the extension is Volkswagen continued to submit "significant information and data" about the repair effort for the affected models since submitting the proposed fix back on November 20th. VW spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan tells Reuters the German automaker continues "to fully cooperate with EPA and CARB as we work to develop an approved remedy as quickly as possible." Volkswagen has said previously that newer TDI vehicles will need only a software upgrade to fix the issue, while older models might need some new equipment to go along with the upgrade. Source: Reuters, CARB Press Release is on Page 2 UPDATE: CARB sends VW letter on proposed recall plan CARB to act on or before January 14, 2016 SACRAMENTO - As the result of submissions by VW over the past week, CARB sent VW America a letter indicating that it would act on the proposed recall plan on or before January 14, 2016. The letter follows below, and can be found at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/vw_info/vw_diesel_info.htm ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ December 18, 2015 David GeanacopoulosExecutive Vice President Public Affairs and General Counsel Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.2200 Ferdinand Porsche Drive Herndon, Virginia 20171David.Geanacopoulos@vw.com Subject: Volkswagen 2.0 L Recall Plan Submission Dear Mr. Geanacopoulos: As a result of Volkswagen Group of America's (VW) continued submission of additional significant information and data to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as part of VW's proposed 2.0L influenced emission recall plan (Title 13, Cal. Code Regs. § 2113) --- including information VW submitted in writing on December 14, 2015, and verbally as recently as December 16, 2015 --- CARB plans to act on your proposed 2.0L influenced emission recall plan on or before January 14, 2016. Mr. Stuart Johnson, on behalf of VW, discussed this issue with me earlier this week. Please confirm in writing to me, no later than noon Pacific Time, Monday, December 21, 2015, that VW has no objection to CARB's planned response date of on or before January 14, 2016. As you know, VW submitted a December 15, 2015, request for an extension to submit VW's supplemental, proposed 2.0L influenced emission recall plan to CARB. CARB will also respond to this extension request on or before January 14, 2016. If you have any questions, I can be reached at (626) 450-6150. Sincerely, Annette Hebert, Chief Emissions Compliance, Automotive Regulations, and Science Division
  3. Volkswagen and U.S. regulators have finally agreed to a plan on the diesel emission scandal and possible dates have been set up for fixing the various the vehicles involved. Despite this, some of the diesel vehicles will not be fully compliant with clean air laws. According to Bloomberg, the oldest 2.0L TDI engines found in the last-generation Jetta and Golf, and 2009 Beetle will emit more emissions even with a possible fix. According to the California Air Resources Board, the possible fix will cut the emissions down by 80 to 90 percent. But even with the cut, the vehicles could emit as much as 40 times the permitted amount of NOx. This has some environmental advocates angry at the U.S. Government. “For reasons they didn’t state, they’re allowing fixed vehicles to not be fixed, but to allow vehicles to emit twice as much pollution as they otherwise would allow,” said Daniel Becker, director of the Safe Climate Campaign. Part of the reason Volkswagen might not be able to fully fix some of the diesel vehicles comes down to cost. There was talk about adding a urea-tank system on older models, but it was deemed to be too expensive. Instead, Volkswagen and regulators came up with alternate ways of cleaning up the air such as buy backs. We got our first indication of this back in March when a CARB official said that some of the affected TDI vehicles will only get a partial fix. At the current moment, a fix for any of the 2.0L TDI vehicles hasn't been approved by the government. Bloomberg says Volkswagen will send a proposal for the so-called third-generation 2.0L TDI vehicles as soon as July 29th and could be approved by October. Here is the remainder of Volkswagen's schedule, First-Generation 2.0L TDI: Proposal by November 11th, could be approved in January 2017 Second-Generation 2.0L TDI: Proposal by December 16th, could be approved by March 2017 Source: Bloomberg
  4. 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. Source: Bloomberg
  5. Last month, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) rejected Volkswagen's plan to fix the 2.0L TDI because it was "incomplete, substantially deficient and fall far short of meeting the legal requirements to return these vehicles” to compliance. With this setback, many are concerned that it will be awhile before a fix is agreed on by Volkswagen and CARB/EPA. German magazine Manager Magazin reports that top managers at the German automaker believe an agreement between the three parties might not happen until the end of March. The reason comes down to the EPA wanting to do a long-distance test of Volkswagen's proposed fix to make sure it actually fixes the problem of elevated emission levels. The report also mentions that expected costs of doing the recall, possible buybacks, and customer compensation will be significantly higher than first thought. Source: Manager Magazin
