Renault charged with deception in diesel emissions investigation Car News

Renault has been indicted by a French court with deception in connection with a diesel emissions investigation launched in 2017.

The French carmaker has confirmed that it was indicted yesterday (June 8) and posted bail of € 20m (£ 17.2m) with a bank guarantee of € 60m (£ 52m ).

The investigation by French prosecutors began in 2017 in the aftermath of the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal.

Investigation reports from 2019 suggested that prosecutors had found that some older Renault vehicles produced NOx emissions more than 10 times the allowable limits.

Renault has just published a press release which reads as follows: “Renault denies having committed an offense and recalls that its vehicles are not equipped with any rigging software for pollution control devices.

“Renault has always complied with French and European regulations. Renault vehicles have all and always been approved in accordance with the laws and regulations in force.
