German politicians, industry agree diesel plan

German politicians, industry agree diesel plan”

Mercedes-Benz Korea, meanwhile, said Friday that it would offer engine software updates for the diesel vehicles and also cooperate with the related authorities over the inspections.

The diesel recall comes just a day after Mercedes-Benz announced a similar update for three million of its diesels.

"Cars of the BMW Group are not being manipulated and are in line with the applicable legal requirements", BMW said in a statement.

Bartolo Colon Mulling Retirement After Signing Contract with Minnesota Twins
Twins manager Paul Molitor once batted against Colon, too. "But like I said, it could've turned out better, that's for sure". A four-time All-Star, Colon made his major-league debut in 1997 and the Twins will be his 10th major-league team.

Given that the V6 and V8 TDI engines are used across both Audi and Volkswagen brands, it would seem inevitable that another Volkswagen diesel recall is on the way.

While the named companies declined to comment on allegations, German analysts said that, if true, it would indicate a long-term pattern of collusion over diesel emissions fraud dating back two decades.

The German auto maker, owned by Volkswagen, will request owners of the vehicles to return them in order to update the software controlling emissions.

Cristiano Ronaldo Confirms Baby No. 4 Is on the Way
Ronaldo and Rodriguez confirmed their relationship in January when they walked the Best FIFA Football Awards red carpet together. On Tuesday, the Spanish newspaper El Mundo asked the Real Madrid player if he was happy about having a fourth baby on the way.

They discussed details such as the sizing of tanks for diesel emissions treatment fluid and they agreed to use smaller rather than larger ones, Der Spiegel said. Vehicles from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles allegedly also have defeat devices in their cars.

In a move to woo customers, German carmaker giant Audi is offering free software upgrade for its diesel cars to improve emissions.

German carmakers Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW and Daimler secretly worked together from the 1990s onwards on issues including polluting emissions from diesel vehicles, news magazine Der Spiegel reported. In theory, this process would involve the SCR (selective catalytic reduction) tank being switched off both below and above certain temperatures to ensure the AdBlue mixture is not depleted, albeit at the expense of Carbon dioxide and particulate emissions. The cost of the rescue plan amounts to under 2 billion ($2.33 billion) euros for cars in Germany, with the auto industry agreeing to shoulder the expense of about 100 euros per vehicle. Volkswagen has agreed to more than $20 billion in US civil and criminal fines and settlements, and eight executives have been charged.

India sounds red alert in J&K, United States calls yatra attack reprehensible
A massive manhunt has been launched in Jammu and Kashmir to catch Ismail and his terror group members. "The terrorist attack on Amarnath Pilgrims is outrageous", said Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Pressure on auto manufacturers in Germany and elsewhere has been growing steadily since Volkswagen's admission in 2015 that it installed systems in 11 million diesel-fuelled cars worldwide to defeat regulatory emissions tests. Diesel engines, however, have higher nitrogen oxide emission which harms human health and sulfur which harms the environment.
