BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen said it would recall around 8.5 million diesel-engine cars in the European Union (EU) after Germany requested servicing of the vehicles following a scandal over rigged emissions tests.

VW said on Thursday that it would need to be determined outside the 28-nation EU which classes of engine EA 189 were affected. The latest engine generation EA 288 is not affected, it said.
