Volkswagen recalls Chinese cars


Volkswagen has said it is recalling almost 2,000 cars in China as the fallout from the diesel emissions scandal continues.

The country's environment ministry also announced an investigation into VW cars sold in China, after the German carmaker admitted installing software designed to cheat emissions tests.

VW has said that 11 million vehicles are affected worldwide.

The carmaker offered its "sincerest apologies" to its Chinese customers.

It is recalling 1,950 cars, mainly Tiguan models, all imported into China. This represents a small fraction of the total number of VWs imported by the country.

However, analysts said the recall comes at a bad time for the world's biggest carmaker.
