Daimler confirms probe into its 'cheating software'

Sunday, 14. April 2019 12:55

Daimler is being investigated by Germany's Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) for a software that allegedly helped some Daimler's Mercedes Benz vehicles cheat on pollution tests by reducing emissions of nitrogen oxide in test conditions, the company confirmed on Sunday. Daimler stated it is cooperating with the KBA.

The response comes after reports emerged in German media saying that the software was installed in 60,000 Mercedes-Benz GLK 220 CDI vehicles from 2012 to 2015.

The probe comes amid the dieselgate scandal in Germany which revealed that German carmakers cheated on emissions tests.
