CONTENT:
The German car giant has admitted cheating emissions tests in the US. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), some cars being sold in America had devices in diesel engines that could detect when they were being tested, changing the performance accordingly to improve results.
VW has had a major push to sell diesel cars in the US, backed by a huge marketing campaign trumpeting its cars' low emissions. The EPA's findings cover 482,000 cars in the US only, including the VW-manufactured Audi A3, and the VW brands Jetta, Beetle, Golf and Passat. But VW has admitted that about 11 million cars worldwide are fitted with the so-called "defeat device".
The result? The engines emitted nitrogen oxide pollutants up to 40 times above what is allowed in the US.

参考译文1:

德国汽车巨头承认在美国尾气检测中动了手脚。环境保护署(EPA)称,美国市面上的这些大众汽车均在柴油机上装了某些设备,能够识别出汽车在接受检测,并随之改变汽车性能,改良检测结果。
借助一场声势浩大的营销活动,大众大肆鼓吹其车“低排放”的优点,由此大大了推动美国柴油汽车的销售。环境保护署的调查结果只涉及美国的48.2万辆造假车,包括大众制造的奥迪A3、捷达、高尔夫和帕萨特等。但大众坦白,在世界范围内有高达1100万辆车安装了“作弊软件”。
后果是什么呢?就是这些汽车排放的氮氧化物最高可达美国排放标准的40倍。
