VW submits vehicle recall plan to CARB and federal counterparts

On Friday, bigwig German automaker Volkswagen (VW) - which is currently dealing with diesel emissions-cheating scandal - submitted its vehicle recall plan with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and its federal counterparts.

The submission of the vehicle recall plan by VW comes nearly two months after a September revelation by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that the automaker was using a so-called 'defeat device' software on its diesel vehicles, to cheat diesel emissions tests in the country.

According to the EPA's disclosure, nearly 482,000 diesel vehicles sold by VW in the US, between 2009 and 2015, were equipped with the 'defeat device' software to circumvent federal emissions requirements.

In the wake of the disclosure by the EPA, VW was given a November 20 deadline by California to submit its plan for the recall of diesel vehicles on which the 'defeat device' software has been installed.
