Audi AG is recalling up to 850,000 diesel vehicles outside of the U.S. and Canada to fix emissions-related software. The decision was made in part to counteract possible driving bans tied to excessive diesel emissions. The German automaker said the recall affects vehicles with six- and eight-cylinder diesel engines and will involve updating the cars’ software at no cost to the vehicles’ owners. The software update will improve emissions expended during real driving conditions beyond existing legal requirements and will help Audi reduce overall emissions in cities, the company said. The update also applies to Porsche and Volkswagen brands with identical turbocharged direct injection motors, and the recall will be conducted in conjunction with Germany’s Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt, or KBA – the country’s federal transportation agency. Audi also said that some KBA investigations are ongoing.
