[FRANKFURT] German motor authority KBA has ordered a recall of Audi A6 and A7 models with 3.0 litre Euro 6 diesel engines after finding illegal emissions software in them, Germany’s Transport Ministry said. 

Some 33,000 vehicles are affected in Germany, and a total 60,000 worldwide, it said on Wednesday. 

Audi, a premium brand of Volkswagen, had already said last month that it had stopped deliveries of A6 and A7 models with a certain type of diesel engine after discovering unspecified problems with emissions software.
