Fiat Chrysler Now Caught In The Crosshairs Of The Clean Air Act

Fiat Chrysler refused to comment.

Jan 16 Tests conducted on Fiat Chrysler's 500X model showed the vehicle is compliant with regulations and there are no emissions irregularities as alleged by Germany, Italy's transport ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The Department for Transport (DfT) said it will be running tests on the Fiat Chrysler's Jeep Grand Cherokee model in the wake of emissions accusations from the US.

On Thursday, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warned Fiat Chrysler could face a fine of around $44,500 per vehicle, which could mean a total of around $4.6bn (£3.8bn), after the company was accused of breaking emissions laws in 104,000 diesel vehicles.

Germany a year ago raised concerns over certain Fiat Chrysler models, including the Fiat 500X, Fiat Doblo, and Jeep Renegade, alleging that hidden software allowed excessive emissions by their diesel engines.

Italian Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Graziano Delrio has replied by stating that, "there were no illegal devices found on FCA vehicles", and reaffirmed that each individual country's authorities are responsible for approving vehicle testing.

Fortune stated that after Italy rejected Germany's assertions a year ago, Berlin requested that the European Commission negotiate in the conflict.

British authorities said they will carry out tests on Fiat Chrysler's Jeep Grand Cherokee model, in response to allegations the carmaker deliberately misled regulators over diesel cars emissions.

A row has again broken out between Germany and Italy over vehicle emissions. Under an emission testing administration which the Commission is now looking to modernize, though the national watchdogs affirm new autos and have the selective energy to police manufacturers- however once endorsed in one nation, vehicles can be sold over the alliance.
