Fiat Chrysler Sued by US Government over Excess Emissions

  • As per reports, a civil lawsuit on Tuesday was filed by the US government accusing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV of unlawfully using software to avoid emission controls in 104,000 diesel vehicles sold since 2014.

    The lawsuit filed is a procedural step that may increase pressure on Fiat Chrysler.

    Reports also say that this lawsuit may help leading to a resolution, as in an earlier investigation of Volkswagen AG which will cost VW up to $25 billion.

    VW admitted of cheating while Fiat Chrysler still refuses to admit any wrongdoing.
