Paris - Renault on Monday promised to come up with a “technical plan” over coming weeks to bring down harmful emissions of its vehicles.
On Thursday, a government-appointed commission said that Renault's diesel cars failed pollution tests and investigators raided its facilities, raising fears the French carmaker could be caught up in an emissions scandal similar to the one engulfing Volkswagen, which has admitted to using cheating software to fool tests.
The commission said test results on French and foreign vehicles had found carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions in Renault cars to be too high, as were those of several non-French.
RENAULT “DID NOT CHEAT”
“We are working on a technical plan which should allow us to cut emissions,” Renault sales director Thierry Koskas said during a presentation on the group's 2015 sales performance.
