[BERLIN] New Volkswagen chief executive Matthias Mueller said the carmaker has drawn up a"comprehensive" action plan to ensure that its diesel models will be able to meet emission standards.

VW will tell its customers "in the next few days" to retrofit diesel models equipped with manipulated software and provide technical solutions in October, Mr Mueller said in a speech to top managers at Wolfsburg headquarters late on Monday.

Separately, Mr Mueller said VW's troubled core autos division will in future become "as independent as" premium flagships Audi and Porsche, according to the speech text obtained by Reuters.
