So what is DSLGATE? We translate this to be the now infamous Volkswagen Diesel Gate engineering scam of which Volkswagen engineers spend resources on what is referred to as a “defeat device” which means a device or program that will work around emissions testing standards globally.
Volkswagen did this by acknowledging that emissions tests are often done in a laboratory where the vehicle in question is set in place in a dynamometer.
Netflix’s Dirty Money has a fantastic episode related to this scandal, and how far reaching it was in the executive management ranks of Volkswagen.
This Audi Q5 (which is a Volkswagen Brand) has a TDI tag which means it is a turbo diesel motor. Check out our other Diesel engine vanity license plates.
