U.S., European Authorities Probe Into Carbon Dioxide Levels In Some Audi Cars

The Wall Street Journal reported that Volkswagen AG (VKW.L,VLKAF.PK,VOW.BE) and its Audi AG luxury unit confirmed that U.S. and European investigators are looking into fresh irregularities related to carbon dioxide emissions levels in certain Audi automatic-transmission vehicles.

Volkswagen reportedly said it was in talks with U.S. and European regulators over the new issue, which has emerged as a fresh investigative strand in its yearlong diesel-engine emission scandal. The vehicles now in question are both gasoline and diesel powered.

The company reportedly noted that the Investigators are now looking into whether the way Audi engineered some of its automatic transmissions was aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions during lab tests but allow higher emissions during normal road use.
