It appears the Volkswagen Group is in disagreement with the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when it comes to the Audi 3.0 TDI. Late yesterday the EPA issued a release suggesting the turbocharged V6 diesel engine was exhibiting behavior suggesting it had a cheater configuration similar to the other 2.0 TDI models caught up in #Dieselgate.

The accusations include several MY2016 Audi models and also the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg. In reaction to that, Volkswagen issued the following statement.

[Begin Statement]
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) informed Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft on Monday that vehicles with V6 TDI engines had a software function which had not been adequately described in the application process. Volkswagen AG wishes to emphasize that no software has been installed in the 3-liter V6 diesel power units to alter emissions characteristics in a forbidden manner.

Volkswagen will cooperate fully with the EPA clarify this matter in its entirety.
