The South Korean government on Tuesday stopped the sale of 80 different models of vehicles manufactured by German carmaker Volkswagen in connection with the emissions scandal.
The certifications of some 83,000 cars made by Volkswagen, Audi and Bentley were withdrawn, the Environment Ministry said in a statement.
In late July, Volkswagen said it would voluntarily stop selling 79 of its models in South Korea because of investigations linked to the emissions scandal affecting more than 11 million cars worldwide.
VW has been accused of doctoring hundreds of documents relating to emissions, fuel use and noise tests to obtain permission for the import of cars such as the VW Golf and Audi models into South Korea since 2010.
