Fiat Chrysler has agreed to pay as much as $800 million to settle charges that it cheated diesel emissions tests. The multinational auto manufacturer will pay $305 million to the state of California and the federal government, recall around 104,000 vehicles, pay vehicle owners an average of $2,500 in compensation, and pay approximately $78 million in litigation and other penalties.

The vehicles involved in the settlement are the 2014, 2015 and 2016 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with 3-liter diesel engines.

Owners of these vehicles will also receive a payment averaging US$2800 ($3900) and an extended warranty. The VW scandal extended to some 11 million other vehicles the company sold worldwide and led to USA criminal charges against eight people. Roughly 100,000 vehicles are affected; of those, more than 13,000 are in California.

West Ham source dismisses link to global midfielder
West Ham United star Samir Nasri has admitted that he cried when he thought that his career was over. I don't know what the Spaniard gives you - and Eden Hazard is just not a striker.

The settlement is scheduled to be announced Thursday by the Justice Department in Washington, the person said.

Wheeler and Deputy Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio said the settlement shows that the Trump administration will enforce environmental law and provide a level playing field for the majority of companies that do follow environmental rules and laws.

Fiat Chrysler shares were up 1.2 percent at $15.96 in NY near midday on Thursday.

Authorities in Las Vegas would then determine whether it matches genetic material found on Mayorga's dress. Lennard has since been in contact with Mayorga's team and will be looking to share her evidence with them.

However, under the terms of the settlement, no admission of guilt is required from Fiat Chrysler. Fiat Chrysler has two years to fix 85 percent of the vehicles being recalled, and it will face more penalties if it fails to do so. The company will also pay a $305 (£239 / €265) million civil penalty and "implement a program to mitigate excess pollution from these vehicles".

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency first accused FCA of wrongdoing in January 2017 when it issued a notice alleging the company violated the Clean Air Act with excessive emissions of harmful nitrogen oxide. About 500,000 VW vehicles were involved in the US cheating scandal.

"This settlement is a direct result of the enhanced screening and testing procedures CARB developed to uncover the Volkswagen diesel cheating scandal", said Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the air board, in a prepared statement.

The Justice Department said the settlement does not resolve an ongoing criminal investigation into Fiat Chrysler's conduct.
