According to reports, the US Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board signed a contract for vehicles of the Volkswagen Group with 3.0-liter TDI engines .

According to a letter from
Reuters
the regulatory authorities have approved a correction for a number of different crossings. Details are limited but it sounds like the repair for 2013-2015 Audi Q7s as well as 2013-2016 Porsche Cayenne and models Volkswagen Touareg approved.

Despite the approval for its crossover solution, the company is still waiting for the regulatory authorities to complete the vehicle repair with the 3.0-liter TDI engine .

a significant victory for the Volkswagen Group, as the letter allegedly said it could save the car maker more than 1 billion dollars. As part of the settlement announced early in 1945, Volkswagen agreed to issue at least $ 1.2 billion for the repurchase or repair of nearly 80,000 vehicles equipped with the 3.0-liter TDI engine. In particular, the company must pay people who have repaired their vehicle, a compensation between 8,500 and 17,000 US dollars.

This is not a change, but the situation could have been much worse. If the EPA and CARB had not approved the repair, Volkswagen could have been on the market for up to $ 4 billion.
