Retrofitting the diesel engine

According to a WDR report, anyone wishing to have their diesel retrofitted so as not to be affected by any driving bans must fork out between EUR 2,000 and EUR 3,600. Only two car manufacturers, Mercedes Benz and the Volkswagen Group, have signalled that they want to subsidise the above-mentioned retrofitting measures with subsidies. This technology has also received official approval from the Federal Motor Transport Authority, which could increase the chance that other manufacturers will soon offer similar financial support for retrofitting. The consumer will be pleased!
