Volkswagen halts deliveries of Golf 8 due to software problem

HAMBURG (Reuters) - Volkswagen is halting deliveries of its Golf 8 model after a software problem was found in some vehicles, a spokesman said on Friday.

The software at issue enables emergency calls, a function required by E.U. regulations since 2018.

The company will decide in the next few days how to deal with affected cars, such as a recall and software update.
