Volkswagen admitted last week that around 11 million cars around the world were affected by their diesel emissions scandal. Audi has now said that 2.1 million of their cars are affected by it. The company says that these cars have been fitted with the 'defeat device' used by Volkswagen to cheat in emissions tests. The engine in question is the EA189, 2.0 litre TDI engine that is widely used by VW and Audi.
