Mercedes Benz's parent company was investigated. What did Mercedes Benz's parent company do
4hw.com.cn: Recently, Mercedes Benz's accidents can be continuous. There have been oil leakage scandals in China. Now Mercedes Benz's parent company has also been investigated. What has happened to Mercedes Benz's parent company? Let's have a look.
Daimler group, the parent company of Mercedes Benz, a German luxury car brand, was once again investigated by the federal automobile transportation agency, the German automobile industry regulator, for allegedly using software fraud to let tens of thousands of its cars pass the exhaust detection.
It is reported that the problem vehicle is a diesel version of Mercedes Benz glk220cdi sport utility vehicle produced from 2012 to 2015. In 2018, the German Federal Automobile Transportation Bureau found that the diesel engine of this car was suspected of software fraud, and then launched an investigation.
A spokesman for Daimler group confirmed on the same day that the German Federal Automobile Transport Authority had launched a dialogue with Daimler and held a hearing on this several months ago.
The 'emission gate' scandal in the German auto industry broke out in 2015. Starting from Volkswagen Group, BMW and Daimler have been verified one after another to adjust the working state of diesel engine through software, so as to issue standards for NOx emission in the exhaust detection state, so as to cover up the fact that the emission of engine greatly exceeds the standard under normal driving conditions.
In addition, the European Commission announced earlier this month that the investigation confirmed that Daimler, Volkswagen and BMW illegally monopolized the clean emission technology of diesel engines from 2006 to 2014, in violation of EU antitrust regulations.
