scandal Dieselgate Volkswagen has had no impact on the majority of automotive brands. The fraud of the emissions found in millions of cars, the German group has put on alert to different organisms. Now is Renault that seems to be involved in a possible fraud of emissions. Sources of a trade union and the brand itself have confirmed that the anti-fraud office French is conducting registrations at different offices of Renault.
The mere fact that Renault is being investigated has had a direct impact can be noticeable about the quote in the ball of the shares of the French company. The actions of Renault have plummeted by more than 20%, the highest drop in stock of the company in the last 17 years. The technicians of the commission anti-fraud have visited four sites of Renault, including the central offices of Boulounge-Billancourt, near Paris, and the technical centre in Lardy.
is not Yet clear if there is fraud and if it would be related to emissions of NOx, but taking into account that it has registered one of the technical centers in which the brand works on the development of engines, it is not surprising that suspicions remain that way or at least have some kind of relationship with the fraud of emissions.
By the time Renault has defended itself saying that their vehicles do not mount any type of technology, fraudulent, and which will cooperate with the authorities to clarify the situation. For the moment, we must be careful with the accusations, since they simply it is an investigation, not a prosecution in the firm.
