Porsche has unveiled its newest family member: the Cayenne Coupé. This SUV is somewhat overdue, as competitors Mercedes and BMW already released sporty SUVs of their own. We took a good look.
Chief Executive Oliver Blume has said the sports carmaker will focus on petrol/gasoline, hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Porsche and its parent Volkswagen have seen their image take a beating in the wake of Dieselgate.
A preliminary ban has been imposed on new registrations of Porsche Cayenne vehicles with manipulated diesel engine management software. Germany announced a recall of thousands of affected vehicles last month.
Volkswagen Slovakia is laying off 3,000 people by June as the parent company shifts its focus to electric vehicles. The domestic economy is heavily dependent on car production, and EU emissions targets mean big changes.
The Federal Transport Authority is seeking a recall of 19,000 SUVs in Germany after discovering the luxury vehicles emitted excessive pollutants due to cheating software. Other countries are expected to follow suit.
