Market tapping VW Atlas Tanoak concept revealed at NYIAS 2018

In response to this ruling, Volkswagen has said that it would buy back cars from customers if cities impose such a ban on diesel cars. (Reuters/Lucy Nicholson) This is just one of 37 facilities in the U.S. storing VWs and Audis.

This is just one of 37 storage areas the firm has around the U.S., housing nearly 300,000 vehicles. The lots include a shuttered suburban Detroit football stadium, a former Minnesota paper mill and a sun-bleached desert graveyard near Victorville, California.

VW spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said the cars in California were being "routinely maintained in a manner to ensure their long-term operability and quality, so that they may be returned to commerce or exported once USA regulators approve appropriate emissions modifications".

German carmaker Volkswagen said it would offer to buy back diesel vehicles if German cities ban them and also extended incentives for potential buyers of diesel cars to battle a slump in demand. The cars stored at these locations are routinely maintained in a manner to ensure their long-term operability and quality.

It appears that up until the end of 2017 VW had bought back 335,000 vehicles, scrapped 28,000 of them and resold 13,000.

"These vehicles are being stored on an interim basis and routinely maintained in a manner to ensure their long-term operability and quality, so that they may be returned to commerce or exported once US regulators approve appropriate emissions modifications", she said.

According to reports, till date, VW has called off almost 120,000 old diesel vehicles from August a year ago.

Skoda - a part of the Volkswagen Group has announced a similar buyback offer valid on cars purchased between April 1 2018 and the end of June 2018 and will cover bans introduced within 4 years from the date of purchase.

The company admitted in September 2015 that it had circumvented the emissions control system in the United States for diesel vehicles sold since 2009.
