Volkswagen to recall around 8.5 millionn vehicles in Europe
Oct.15, London: Volkswagen has said it will recall 8.5 million diesel-engine cars in Europe after a scandal over rigged emissions tests, local media reported.
German media reports said that the move was prompted by Germany's automotive watchdog, which earlier told VW to recall 2.4 million domestic cars.
The KBA earlier rejected VW's proposals that car owners could voluntarily bring their cars in for repair.
Meanwhile, Italian police have raided VW offices in Verona and Lamborghini offices in Bologna.
Reports suggest Italian prosecutors are investigating alleged commercial fraud.
