VW and Renault diesel models to be banned in France


France’s Environment Minister Segolene Royal said that regulators were still investigating the situation, including commissioning an examination of Renault’s engine software. “It’s underway and will be published. We’ll have the first results in December,” she said about reviewing the code. “We will be asking the consumer fraud investigators and prosecutors to communicate any findings that will enable us to establish whether it’s necessary to withdraw sales authorizations.”


European law allows automakers to adjust a vehicle’s emissions if it’s necessary for protecting the engine. Investigators now need to know whether VW and Renault’s methods are really there for preserving the powerplants.
