After the scandal of the Dieselgate of the Volkswagen Group brands began to lie down on the face that also made traps similar to those carried out by the German consortium. In addition, some countries, such as France have been put to investigate what is what is happening with the emissions of the engines that the brands sold in your country. These investigations found that Renault could have also made traps at the time of introducing the emissions of its mechanics.
This news jumped into the fray a couple of weeks ago and since then Renault is under suspicion in France by the emissions of NOx of their engines. However the thing could go further as the Direction générale de la concurrence, de la consommation et de la répression des frauds (DGCCRF) has indicated that their engineers are scrutinizing the technology that would carry the engines of the manufacturer to see if at some time have employed some method to trick the time to confirm the NOx emissions of their engines.
true deception Ministry of Environment French advance both the Volkswagen Group (only for now Volkswagen) and Renault would be paralyzed for the sale of the models which have served to commit the fraud. This could damage severely the automotive sector at the european level and to both brands, as many of their sales are located in this country.
Of all this what more flame the attention is that France, being one of the largest shareholders in Renault, is taking a crusade against the fraud of environmental in one of its most important companies. However, in the Volkswagen we have the opposite situation, since the state of Lower Saxony in Germany is one of its shareholders and is not very by the work of uncovering the dealings dirty within the multinational.
Both for the good and for the bad have to wait and the DGCCRF ruling on the results obtained and the Ministry dictates the punishment to be imposed on the two brands.
