HAMBURG (Reuters) – Volkswagen <VOWG_p.DE> is prepared to agree to a compromise on hardware retrofits for diesel vehicles and to offer further incentives for drivers to swap some older diesel vehicles for newer ones, a person familiar with the matter said.

But the carmaker rejects a proposal that carmakers should buy back older diesel vehicles, the person said.

Volkswagen declined to comment.
