Volkswagen emissions scandal: Which vans are affected?

With Volkswagen in the midst of a mass recall as a result of the EA189 diesel engine emissions scandal, the attention has now turned to its commercial vehicle line-up and the 79,838 vehicles affected by the so-called ‘cheat device’.

From January 2016, Volkswagen will recall some vans and pick-ups that use the EA189 diesel engines. This includes both 2.0 and 1.6-litre TDIs, but doesn't affect all models or those built before 2009.

Neither the T5 or new T6 Volkswagen Transporter is affected by the emissions scandal. According to reports, many of the older models use the same EA189 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that's at the centre of the media storm, but no Transporter vans were ever fitted with the software for optimising emissions.
