Audi Steps Up Production Ahead Of New Pollution Rules

FRANKFURT – Audi has stepped up production ahead of a September deadline when it becomes harder to register vehicles as roadworthy, the German premium carmaker said on Friday.

From next month, vehicles need to pass new pollution rules known as the Worldwide Harmonized Light Duty Vehicles Test procedure, or WLTP. Cars which are registered for sale ahead of this deadline can still be passed on to dealerships after September.

The Ingolstadt-based manufacturer said it had ramped up production ahead of the deadline and therefore does not expect to see a drop in vehicle deliveries this year, even as it faces problems adjusting its portfolio.
