In connection with the entry into force of the new WLTP ecostandards, German automotive concern Volkswagen was forced to discontinue the line of several models. Starting from September 1, 2018, the current NEDC standard will be replaced for all produced cars. To meet European requirements, Volkswagen will have to conduct certified tests of about 200 of its models. To be on time, some less popular models will be temporarily taken out of production to gradually bring them in compliance with requirements.
Since the end of May, Volkswagen shares have fallen by 2.4% and will continue to decline further based on the news. Trading will be available during the European session, from 07:00 to 15:30 GMT.
