Skoda announces that 1.2m of its cars are affected in Volkswagen emissions scandal

Published 28 September 2015

Skoda has become the latest manufacturer to get caught up in the Volkswagen emissions scandal. It has announced that 1.2 million cars are fitted with the defeat devices, though at this stage it's unclear which models are affected and how many of those are in the UK.

It follows a similar admission from Audi earlier today.

SEAT, which uses the same engines as Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda, has yet to announce how many cars - and which models - are affected.
