EC opens FCA infringement procedure

Case regards defeat device

(ANSA) - Brussels, May 17 - The European Commission said Wednesday that it has launched an infringement procedure against Italy over the emission control strategies employed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). The case regards use of defeat devices, which lead to higher NOx emissions outside the test cycle. The Commission said Italy had to respond to concerns FCA had not justified the technical necessity - and thus the legality - of a device used, and clarify whether it has failed to adopt corrective measures and impose penalties on the car manufacturer.
