Report: Volkswagen halts production of the Passat TDI for the US

In case you’ve been living under a rock over the past couple months, Volkswagen’s in some deep doo-doo with the law over cheating on emissions testing for its new diesel models.

That said, Volkswagen is currently under a lot of scrutiny, including all of the diesel-powered vehicles made under the corporation’s various portfolios, ranging from TDI-powered Audis, to diesel Porsches.

Now, Volkswagen of America is said to have ceased production of the Passat TDI, following a stop-sale on all US-spec TDI cars, after they were found to have been affected by the emissions cheat software used to manipulate the EPA’s emissions tests.

According to¬†AutomotiveNews, Volkswagen repealed their application for an EPA certification on 2016 2.0L TDI-powered models because the engines are still being investigated and fixed. It’s currently not known when Volkswagen will resume selling TDI-powered models in the US.

It’s also important to note that our Volkswagen Passat is still the seventh generation model, as Europe is well into adopting the all-new eighth-generation car.
