Fortschritt durch Technik. That’s Audi’s motto and means progress through technology.
And their latest advance in defeat device technology is a great step forward in consumer deception indeed.
Audi’s defeat device, camouflaged as a warm-up function, keys in on movements of the steering wheel to detect if the car is in the lab or not. Once in normal traffic, however, this warm-up function is deactivated and the vehicle switches to a higher fuel consumption mode, thus producing more CO2. Brilliant, don’t you think?
Come on, America. Why can’t you produce technology like this? These new fangled electric cars everybody is talking about these days don’t have any of this cool stuff.
So schummelte Audi bei CO² – Mit einer Software sollen Messergebnisse manipuliert worden sein.
