Volkswagen Group Hong Kong Announces Information and Next Steps in Addressing the Worldwide Diesel Emissions Issue

HONG KONG, Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Volkswagen Group Hong Kong (VGHK) today issued the official statement regarding the diesel emissions issue related to Hong Kong and Macau as follows:

"None of the passenger cars sold in Hong Kong or Macau are affected, because the engine under investigation has never been imported to the local market.

For Commercial Vehicles, Volkswagen Caddy is the only model imported to Hong Kong and Macau that is affected.  All of these vehicles are technically safe and roadworthy. A service campaign will be carried out with a total of 384* units of affected Caddy (model year between 2011-2015) and any affected customers will be informed individually in due course. Volkswagen Group Hong Kong is committed to ensuring this issue is handled in a swift and transparent manner with minimum customer inconvenience."

With immediate effect, VGHK will temporarily suspend the sale of the Caddy until the service campaign is carried out on all affected vehicles.

VGHK has been working closely with relevant government authorities to advise them on the situation and our next steps to rectify the affected vehicles with full cooperation and transparency.

VGHK takes this case very seriously and will dedicate all its effort with top priority to minimize any disturbance that may be caused to any affected Caddy customers. We apologize for all the inconvenience caused to our Caddy customers, and we are committed to do what we can to strengthen customers' trust and confidence on us.
