Report: Volkswagen’s “dieselgate” affects SEAT and Skoda TDI vehicles as well

Volkswagen’s “dieselgate” keeps going relentlessly deeper down the hole as Reuters reports Spanish automaker, SEAT, also owned and operated by Volkswagen Group, produced around 700,000 cars affected by the company’s illegal software with the 2.0L TDI mill.

The “defeat device” that enabled the cars to pass emissions tests by cheating on them was found to be equipped to those 700,000 examples out of the full lot of 11 million cars affected under Volkswagen’s portfolio.

With the latest tallies, the other 11 million consists of around 5 million Volkswagen models, 2.1 million Audi models, and about 1.2 TDI-powered Skodas. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise since Volkswagen owns both SEAT and Skoda and the current models produced by both brands are essentially heavily reengineered versions of certain preexisting Audi and Volkswagen cars.
