Since the onset of the Dieselgate of the Volkswagen Group the brands of cars are under the magnifying glass of almost all the administrations of Environment of the countries in which they sell their cars. In Europe, several groups are being investigated, but it seems to be (a priori), that will be Renault which will bring more sticks. A couple of months ago we already announced that the signing gala would go to court for having falsified the emissions of its diesel engines and now it seems that there is more evidence against it.
apparently would have seen the light of a new report on the emissions released from engines of Renault. According to the text, the signature of the diamond would employee systems“fraudulent” or a “a strategy to skew the results of emissions testing”. These accusations have been made Directorate-General of Competition, Consumption and Repression of Fraud (DGCCRF) after receiving the order by part of the French government to make this report.
The words of this report are devastating for Renault, as its image is being battered almost no time to react. In addition, the DGCCRF indicates that the firm might have used a “device fraudulent that modify specifically the operation of the engine to reduce its emissions of NOx (oxides of nitrogen) in the test conditions for the approval”. In addition, it points out that “the implementation of the strategies fraudulent has taken place for more than seven years”.
models that could be affected by these accusations would be the Talisman, Kadjar, Capture and Clio fourth generation. The total number of units you would approach dangerously close to the million units as there are counted few 898.557 vehicles, although it could be more lost units. These units would be on French soil, and so the number of units could be increased in several thousands of units, as they are the best selling models of Renault in the european markets.
By Renault has issued an official press release which says that “has no intention of making comments about an investigation that is still ongoing and notes that none of their departments break the rules, european and national relating to the type-approval of vehicles“. He ended this statement sentencing that “vehicles Renault are not equipped with devices anti-pollution with that fool in the approval testing”.
time to Time, as the allegations are of such magnitude that elucidate everything that has “failed” to happen requires patience and time.
