FRANKFURT, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Porsche plans to recall diesel-engined Macan models so that it can update their software and avert a German ban on sales, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
“We are readying a software update,” the source, who declined to be named, said on Friday.
Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority KBA has demanded a Feb. 1 meeting to discuss the vehicle’s emission levels, Porsche said, after Germany’s Bild am Sonntag paper said KBA is considering a ban of Macan models equipped with 6 cylinder TDI engines.
Porsche’s diesel engines are supplied by sister brand Audi . (Reporting by Jan Schwartz; Writing by Edward Taylor; Editing by Alexander Ratz and Susan Fenton)
