The Renault Dieselgate begins to take shape in France

Since I broke out the Dieselgate of the Volkswagen Group brands of cars are under the magnifying glass of almost all administrations of the environment of the countries in which they sold their cars. In Europe, several groups are being investigated, but it seems to be (a priori) that will be Renault carrying more sticks. Already a couple of months ago we announced that gala would go to court for having falsified their diesel engines emissions the firm and now appears to be more evidence against her.

Apparently he would have seen the light a new report on the emissions emitted by Renault engines. According to the text, the signing of the diamond would be employed “fraudulent systems” or a “strategy to skew the results of emissions tests”. The Directorate General for competition, consumption and repression of fraud (DGCCRF) has made these allegations after receiving the request from the French Government to carry out this report.

The words of this report are crippling for Renault, because its image is being savaged almost without them time to react. In addition, the DGCCRF indicates that the firm could have used a “fraudulent device that specifically modify the engine performance to reduce their emissions of NOx (nitrogen oxides) in the tests for type-approval conditions”. In addition, points out that “the implementation of the strategies fraudulent took place more than seven years”.

Models that could be affected by these accusations would be the Talisman, Kadjar, capture and Clio’s fourth generation. The total number of units is dangerously closer to one million units as there are recorded some 898.557 vehicles, though there could well be more lost units. These units would be on French soil so that the number of units may be increased by several thousand units, because they are the best selling models of Renault in the European markets.

By Renault has issued an official statement in which it says that “it has no intention of making comments about an investigation that is still ongoing and points out that none of its departments breaks the rules, European and national concerning the approval of vehicles”. This release was completed sentencing that “Renault vehicles are not equipped with anti-pollution devices with those who cheat in approval tests”.

Time to time, the allegations are of such magnitude that clarify everything that has “taken” place thus requires patience and time.
