Volkswagen is not prepared to cover the entire cost of hardware retrofits for older diesel vehicles in Germany, a source at Volkswagen stated, contrary to a deal announced by the German coalition parties on Tuesday.

“If hardware retrofits are accepted by consumers, then we will participate (in the costs) to the extent agreed,” the person informed.

Under the coalition parties’ deal, owners of older diesel cars in German cities where the air is generally contaminated will be able to select between trade-in incentives and a hardware update.
