Volkswagen has been trying to get their diesel engine to approve after the whole dieselgate scandal was exposed three years ago and finally, their diesel engine was given the green light.

The engine that has been approved is the 3.0 liter TDI engine that was approved by Canadian regulators, California Air Resources Board as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The fix will allow Volkswagen and their other brands to start offering diesel-powered models that are compliant with emission standards. The fix will be applicable to approximately 8800 vehicles in NA.

Although the fix has been approved, a lot of vehicles have not received their repairs yet. According to the reports, only 62% of vehicles in the US has been repaired and it is even worse in Canada with only 42% of the vehicles fixed.
