French Authorities To Investigate Renault for Emissions Fraud
French authorities will launch an investigation of carmaker Renault on suspicions of fraud during tests for harmful gas emissions of diesel engines, announced France’s Prosecutor’s Office, reported BGNES.
After the massive scandal with Volkswagen, independent French experts discovered dangerously high levels of harmful emissions of diesel engines of certain carmakers, including Renault.
