Volkswagen resumes deliveries of Golf 8 after software fix

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) is resuming deliveries of its Golf 8 model after fixing a software glitch, a spokesman said on Thursday.

The German automaker halted deliveries of the popular model last month after discovering the problem in the software, which enabled emergency calls, a function required by E.U. regulations since 2018.

Union officials had criticised the defect as one of a string of management lapses that had damaged the carmaker’s reputation and put jobs at risk.
