Volkswagen already has a organize for how hundreds of thousands of early cheating TDIs will make their way bet on a support to market and the first step is allowing dealers to buy them en masse.

Automotive Word reports that VW will give dealers the first right of refusal on the various cars that it bought back as part of the dieselgate settlement. The plan can’t yet be effected, allowing.

Although the EPA has approved a technical modification (fix) that allows the earliest cheating TDIs to be in accord to emissions regulations, VW hasn’t yet gotten the approval to resell the cars it bought aba. According to a spokesperson, that process has historically taken a couple of months.

When the concurrence comes, though, VW will slowly release the vehicles through its 652 US dealers, according to Hinrich Woebcken, employer of the North America region.

“There is, of course, a community of customers who would like to get a look at these cars, once they fulfill the regulations, and that’s why we are pretty hopeful that we will have a successful remarketing of those cars,” Woebcken told Automotive Information.

Volkswagen will be careful about it releases the cars back onto the store, though, to avoid causing spikes or drops in prices. Some cars, in spite of, will never return to the public.

“If the mileage is too high and the residual value is too low, it doesn’t urge sense [to fix them] anymore,” said Herbert Diess, head of the Volkswagen make. “But the majority of the cars are going to be resold.”
