Renault faces fresh accusations of emissions test cheating
French consumer protection agency DGCCRF has said that alongside faking emissions test results for more than twenty years, the car maker’s top bods, including boss Carlos Ghosn, are likely to have known.
The allegations come from a paper, published by French news Liberation, in which the DGCCRF suspect Renault of using a gadget – similar to Volkswagen – so engines would meet or exceed regulations for nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollution. The report names two models specifically, the Captur and Mk4 Clio, as polluting up to 300% more than their tested results show under real-world conditions.
