U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco announced the settlement for the 3-liter diesel cars Tuesday. He said it will include the option of a buyback for at least 20,000 vehicles and will give all the car owners substantial compensation on top of any repairs or a buyback.
Breyer didn’t disclose any numbers and said the parties still have more work to do. It comes after a series of delays this week to give the sides more time to negotiate.
Volkswagen previously reached a deal for 475,000 2-liter diesel cars that also were programmed to cheat on emissions tests.
