VV Will Soon Sell-Diesel-Powered Cars in the U.S.

Volkwagen Diesel
Car-maker Volkswagen AG will soon do what's been thought of as impossible since its emissions crisis began: sell diesel-powered cars in the U.S.

The company received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its dealers to sell 2015 model year diesels after updating the vehicles’ emissions software, VW Group of America spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said.

The software update is part of a required emissions repair approved by the EPA and California Air Resources Board. The repair will also include changes to diesel engine hardware, but dealers do not have to wait until the repair parts become available early next year, Ginivan said.

"We are still finalizing the details of this program and will provide more information on its implementation at the appropriate time,” Ginivan said in a statement.
