INGOLSTADT, Germany -- Germany's transport watchdog, the KBA motor authority, will recall more vehicles with larger diesel engines as part of a recall of 850,000 Volkswagen Group vehicles issued last year, Audi CEO Rupert Stadler said.
Audi said last July that 850,000 diesel models with 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder Euro 5 and Euro 6 powerplants needed an update of their engine-management software to bring emissions into line with legal limits.
The affected models include vehicles from Audi, VW and Porsche.
"There will be further recalls," Stadler told journalists on Friday, without providing additional details.
The KBA has to date issued 6 recall notifications affecting 156,000 cars.
