Mk 8 VW Golf engineers struggling through software issues

Brand head Jürgen Stackmann told Automotive News that software issues have dogged development engineers. The delays in implementation mean that instead of launching Europe's most popular car at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show, Volkswagen will get behind the ID. Stackmann told AN, "We've never hid the fact that software, an area of extreme importance for products in the future, is a serious challenge for us." The most time consuming programming challenges center on over-the-air updates and other digital features, as well as the compliance issues around them.
