] Audi Volkswagen Korea is expected to restart sales of its Audi models soon, auto industry officials said May 18.
The local unit of the German carmaker has already begun sales of the top luxury Bentley line this month, including the newly certified sport utility vehicle Bentayga. The Flying Spur V8, Continental GT V8 and Continental GT V8 convertible have also returned to the market this month after suspension due to fabricated test results on noise levels.
The company has requested certification for the Audi line, including the S3 sedan, RS7, RS7 Plus, and A8L with South Korea‘s environment ministry. These vehicle models had also been suspended from sales for noise level fabrications.
Considering that it took 1 1/2 months for the Bentley models to pass the recertification tests, Audi vehicles may reach consumers around the third quarter, industry officials said.
