According to Auto Bild Germany, BMW is also in trouble. The German magazine is reporting that the X3 xDrive 20d has failed during a street test.
This test was also performed by the International Council on Clean Transportation, showing more than eleven times higher emissions of nitric oxide than permitted by the European Union. Sounds bad for BMW, too.
For now, the information is still not confirmed by the German car manufacturer, but this rumor managed to take down the shares by 8 percent.
BMW denied the report, saying in a statement that "there is no function to recognize emissions testing cycles at BMW. All emissions systems remain active outside the testing cycle".Source: AutoBild
