Fiat Chrysler, Italy face EU questions over diesel emissions on the Fiat 500x

The European Commission called on Italy to provide proof against Germany's allegation that Fiat Chrysler used illegal exhaust emissions defeat devices, stepping up pressure on the group amid accusations of emissions manipulation against it in the U.S.

Germany has asked the EU executive to mediate its dispute with Italy, which rejected Germany's allegations of hidden software on the Fiat 500X, Fiat Doblo and Jeep Renegade models that allowed excess diesel emissions.

Germany's motor vehicle authority, the KBA, began testing the vehicles of several manufacturers, including Fiat Chrysler, after Volkswagen Group's admission in September 2015 that it cheated emissions tests.

An EU source said that testing carried out on one Fiat 500X vehicle at the EU's own vehicle testing laboratory north of Milan showed suspicious emissions behaviour.

Fiat Chrysler declined to comment.

The European Union intends on launching legal action against Italy for how it handled alleged Fiat Chrysler emissions-test cheating.

According to Automotive News, officials from the EU believe the Italian government may have colluded with the automaker and has yet to convince regulators that FCA’s use of a device to control emissions was justified.

“They (Italian authorities) still need to provide additional information that would convince us that the devices used in Fiat models are justified and can therefore be considered legal,” an EU source told the publication.

I've just picked a Cross Plus for £10990, 18 months old cost new £21800, Am I worried? NO! It's a lot of car for the money and I will be keeping it for a number of years. (FingersCrossed)
