Volkswagen's recall proposals rejected in the US

Volkswagen's plans to recall the diesel cars under the emissions cheating scandal has been rejected by the US regulators. The carmaker had decided to recall and fix those diesel cars fitted with devices designed to cheat emissions tests.

According to the California Air Resources Board (Carb), the Volkswagen's proposals did not adequately address overall impacts on vehicle performance, emissions and safety and were not planned over a suitable or quick enough timescale. They also mentioned that VW's planned fix was incomplete, substantially deficient and fell far short of meeting the legal requirements.

A detailed confidential letter outlining why the proposals have been rejected has been sent to VW by the state of California. They will again want to discuss and look into the investigation of the scandal again and find a solution.

Mary Nichols, Chairman, carb, said, "Volkswagen made a decision to cheat on emissions tests and then tried to cover it up. They continued and compounded the lie and when they were caught they tried to deny it. The result is thousands of tons of nitrogen oxide that have harmed the health of Californians. They need to make it right."
