every major manufacturer is now suspected to trick the emissions tests, like Volkswagen Group and its cars did, there are more and more press releases that deny such procedures. The most recent oppinion comes from Fiat-Chrysler Group (FCA), who issued a statement.
On the VW issue, the FCA officials said: ”We are not in a position to comment and we do not intend to comment on matters relating to other manufactures, still under review by the appropriate authorities and whose details are largely unknown.”
Regarding their own vehicles and effort to comply with new Euro 6 rules, the Italians said: ”We confirm that FCA Italy fully complies with all applicable testing and nitrogen oxides emission requirements relating to the homologation of its diesel vehicles, which are not equipped with "defeat devices" in contravention of applicable regulations.”
When it comes to the difference between testing emissions and real drive emissions, they say that the European Union is working in order to update the current homologation procedures (Euro 6) to ensure that they more closely reflect real-world driving conditions. FCA is supportive of this effort and advocates the introduction of these new regulations which will provide more clarity.
