German Regulator Found Defeat Devices In Daimler Diesel Cars

Germany discovers ?illegal? devices that may be in 1M Mercedes diesels - Autoblog

For their part, German firms have announced dozens of new electric and hybrid models for the coming years in a bid to bring down emissions of both greenhouse gas Carbon dioxide - the original reason they turned to diesel - and of harmful NOx.

Daimler has pledged to work on removing the software and to cooperate with authorities, the ministry said.

The German government has ordered auto maker Daimler to recall 238,000 vehicles in Germany after they were found to be fitted with illegal software that masks diesel emissions.

Mercedes-Benz is caught up in an emissions scandal of its own.

Recent weeks have seen Germany´s KBA vehicle licensing authority hit Volkswagen subsidiaries Audi and Porsche with mass recall orders over their engine control software, as well as a smaller batch of cars from rival BMW.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Vito models with diesel engines and a sports utility variant of the sedan, known as the GLC, were the main cars found to be at fault, the ministry said.




German recall affects 220d versions of C-class and GLC, as well as some Vito vans.

Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer made the announcement after a meeting with Daimler chief executive Dieter Zetsche on Monday.

"The government will order 238 000 Daimler vehicles to be immediately recalled Germany-wide because of unauthorised defeat devices", the ministry said in a statement.

Mercedes-Benz NZ had no comment to make on the German recall.

"Daimler states that it will, at maximum speed and with co-operative transparency with the authorities, remove the applications in the engine control system which the government objects to", he said. A statement posted to Twitter confirmed that Daimler will go ahead with the ordered action. "Open legal questions will be clarified in the objection proceedings". AdBlue is an additive injected into the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) filter to reduce emissions. VW was found to have so-called "cheat" devices installed in 11 million vehicles, which kept NOx levels low during laboratory tests but then switched off in normal driving.

It's all remarkably similar to the Volkswagen diesel-emissions scandal uncovered in September 2015, albeit on a much smaller scale.
