California air quality regulators are rejecting Volkswagen’s recall plan to fix vehicles programmed to trick government emissions tests.

The California Air Resources Board said the recall plan for vehicles including the Beetle and Jetta did not meet its standards and was ” unacceptable”.

The US Environmental Protection Agency said it agrees with the move but is working on a different timetable.

Volkswagen says it continues to work with regulators.

The company’s recall plan for 2.0-litre diesel engines covers 500,000 vehicles.

A recall plan for 85,000 3.0-litre engines is due next month.

Volkswagen told regulators last year that it had installed software on its 2009 to 2015 diesel engine models to bypass government emissions tests.
