Mercedes To Recall 774,000 Diesel Vehicles
Mercedes-Benz has just been ordered to recall 774,000 vehicles in Europe after two meetings with Germany’s top regulator failed to allay concerns about irregularities in the Mercedes-Benz maker’s diesel emissions.
Mercedes-Benz will upgrade engine software in Vito vans as well as the GLC SUV and C-Class sedan, Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer said Monday in a statement from Berlin, after meeting with Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche for a second time in two weeks.
Germany’s automotive regulator KBA found 5 unapproved software functions in Daimler’s Euro 6 diesel engines, affecting as many as 1 million vehicles in Germany.
