The theme emissions of combustion engines seems that it has already broken out. The Volkswagen Group was the first who jumped to the fore, but it seems that other groups and brands will fall with the whole team up. Mitsubishi has heeded, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is being investigated in the United States, and Renault is suffering the same in France.
The European country has been very serious, because it is part, Prosecutor and judge in its automotive sector. It has shares in Renault and PSA group and therefore should take care that their businesses comply with the law. Otherwise, the same Executive would get in serious trouble because the European Commission would request explanations. For this reason, in addition to be investigating the diamond firm, also has been hands to work with the lion House.
According to several international media, Automotive News among them, France is investigating the emissions from the engines of the PSA group. Apparently, the Prosecutor of the city of Paris would have sent last April 7 formal notice to the French group to announce the opening of an investigation. This notice comes when the French consortium has emerged as the first in the sector which publishes its consumption and actual emissions.
The crime attributed to them under judicial notice is the of “to cheat in the real quality and checks carried out, with the aggravating circumstance that such events have had the consequence of vehicles that do, dangerous to human or animal health”. These words are not minor, because the French Environment Ministry, is on them which Vulture after their prey.
For now the Group PSA has issued a statement that denies all the allegations that are poured over it. In this release I wanted to make it very clear that “respects the legislation in all the countries where it is present”. Prudence is its maximum and so far not made many statements, as they are expectant to have more information to know where are the official investigations.
