Volkswagen will not produce any diesel-engine Jetta, Golf or Beetle models in America in 2007 because the cars do not meet new federal emissions standards that take effect this fall, according to an article in Sunday's Detroit Free Press. Diesel model sales boomed for VW in 2006 and accounted for almost 23 percent of the company's sale in the first four months of the year. To fulfill demand, VW will build extra 2006 diesel Jettas, offer a 2007 diesel Touareg SUV, and will build a diesel Jetta that is compliant with emissions laws in all 50 states for the 2008 model year.
