Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Ger­man lux­ury car­maker Audi, a Volk­swa­gen sub­sidiary, is­sued a vol­un­tary re­call of up to 850,000 diesel ve­hi­cles, say­ing it would help re­duce engine emis­sions.

‘Audi aims to main­tain the fu­ture vi­a­bil­ity of diesel en­gines for its cus­tomers and to make a con­tri­bu­tion to­wards im­prov­ing air qual­ity’, the Bavaria-based man­u­fac­turer said in a state­ment.

Ve­hi­cles with af­fected en­gines would re­ceive a free soft­ware up­grade that ‘will fur­ther im­prove their emis­sions in real driv­ing con­di­tions be­yond the cur­rent le­gal re­quire­ments’, Audi added.
