German Regulator Found Defeat Devices In Daimler Diesel Cars

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

The German government has ordered carmaker Daimler to immediately recall 238,000 vehicles equipped with software that turns off emissions controls under certain conditions.

"We are cooperating to a full extent and transparently with the KBA and the federal transport ministry."
The diesel Mercedes C-Class C220d and GLC 220d, as well as the Vito 119CDI, are said to be affected, with German authorities demanding the recall after "illegal switch-off devices" were detected.

It added that a total of 774,000 Mercedes vehicles being used across Europe contain the defeat devices.

The recall was announced after meetings on Monday between Daimler executives and Germany's top regulator failed to resolve the issue, which related to unapproved software functions found in the carmaker's Euro 6 diesel engines, according to a report in Bloomberg.

Evercore ISI analyst Arndt Ellinghorst predicted the costs for the required software update for Daimler would be less than 100 million euros ($118 million).

Diesels have been under heavy scrutiny since USA authorities caught Volkswagen using illegal engine control software that turned off diesel emission controls in everyday driving.

In a separate statement, Daimler confirmed the recall and said the question over the legality of the software would still need to be clarified.

This latest development follows news previous year that saw Daimler accused of selling over one million cars with excess emissions in Europe and the United States, following earlier reports in the German media.

Daimler, like other auto manufacturers, uses urea nitrate liquids to neutralize nitrogen oxide emissions in exhaust fumes.

This comes just three years after VW admitted having fitted "cheat" devices in millions of its cars.

These devices were fitted to cheat the emissions testing regime by activating in the laboratory to be able to meet the emissions standard for NOx.

It is believed to have affected around eight million vehicles sold to consumers across the globe.
