Report: EPA delays the sale of 2017 BMW diesels for more thorough testing

Thank you Volkswagen AG, you’re the reason why 2017 BMW diesels are being delayed for further testing, for your deception with emissions test defeat device.

According to AutoGuide, 2017 model-year BMW diesels won’t be making it to their dealers on time, including the 328d sedan and wagon, the 535d, and the X3 and X5 xDrive 35d models.

The EPA declared all models need to undergo extra testing to make sure they’re not being deceptive like Volkswagen.

A BMW spokesperson told Motor1 that they’re looking into the issue and working to get the 2017 model cars to showrooms as fast as possible.

An extended wait notice has been issued, though pending the outcome of “testing logistics.”

Following Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal, all diesel passenger cars were put in the spotlight of scrutiny to make sure other automakers weren’t finding ways to cheat government-mandated emissions tests, for the sake of the environment.

BMW said sales will be affected, but not to any great extent or degree. With AutoGuide’s research on hand, only six percent of all BMWs sold in the US are diesel.
