Daimler selling cars with excessive emissions just like VW did?

Daimler got accused of false advertising and the possible wrongful manipulation of exhaust gas treatment systems in diesel cars two months ago, on May 23 the searches got triggered by Stuttgart local court's search warrant, and according to that document more than 1 million cars with excessive emissions, including various luxury Mercedes-Benz models, were sold in Europe and the U.S. between 2008 and 2016, which researched the matter with regional broadcasters WDR and NDR.

 


A Daimler spokesman declined to comment on the continuing investigation by local prosecutors, adding the carmaker was fully cooperating with the authorities. The cars in question are powered by engines codenamed OM 642 and OM 651, with prosecutors examining the possible use of defeat devices to manipulate emission levels during tests. There is a risk that the vehicles affected in Europe could be banned in the region, the newspaper said, again citing the search warrant. The Daimler spokesman declined to comment on the report, describing it as "speculation," apart from saying the company did not see any danger of its cars being banned.


 

A spokesman for Stuttgart prosecutors declined to comment while Germany's transport ministry couldn't be reached for comment. Carmakers across the globe have faced increased regulatory scrutiny over anti-pollution tests since Volkswagen admitted in September 2015 that it had installed secret software in its diesel cars in the United States to cheat nitrogen oxide emission tests.

    17 Nov 2017

    16 Nov 2017

    U.S. retail sales unexpectedly rose in October as an increase in purchases of motor vehicles and a range of other goods offset a decline in demand for building materials, suggesting consumer spending remained fairly strong early in the fourth quarter.

Retail sales increased 4.6 percent on an annual basis.  Economists forecast that retail sales would be unchanged in November. The slowdown from September's robust pa...
