It is looking increasingly likely that Volkswagen will recall up to 11 million vehicles as it tries to address the emissions scandal.
New chief executive Matthias Mueller said the German carmaker had drawn up a "comprehensive" refit plan to be submitted to regulators aimed at ensuring its diesel models complied with emissions standards, reports Reuters.
It will ask customers "in the next few days" that have diesel models equipped with manipulated software refitted and brief authorities on technical fixes in October.
The company is under huge pressure to tackle the biggest business-related crisis in its 78-year history.
Germany’s KBA regulator had set an October 7 deadline for it to present a plan to bring diesel emissions into line with the law.
