Opel cleared, but not four automakers
Paris: French investigators say they have found evidence of possible emissions fraud in Fiat, Renault, Peugeot-Citroen and Volkswagen cars sold in France, but have found no proof of fraud in Opel vehicles.
The Finance Ministry announced in a statement yesterday that its consumer fraud agency has closed its investigation into Opel, having found no “facts constituting an infraction of fraud”.
The ministry said the agency, DGCCRF, has handed documents to French courts showing fraud in emissions controls concerning Volkswagen, Renault, Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot-Citroen. — AP
