The next car scandal rages. Federal motor transport Germany accuses the automaker Opel of manipulating the emissions of harmful substances in diesel vehicles.

The Office has irrefutable evidence that in some models of the brand, for some unknown reason, during the movement, the emission cleaning system was turned off. This is reported by a foreign publication Bild with reference to its own sources.


It’s about the faulty 60 thousand auto models Cascada, Insignia and Zafira, sold around the world. Of these, 10,000 were purchased by car owners in Germany. According to some reports, suspicions do not fall on the machines that are currently off the assembly line.

This week, the road agency turned to the management of the automaker Opel and informed him of the suspicions. Representatives of the department demanded the company to comment on the situation and provide reliable information within two weeks.

The German automaker up to the present time has denied allegations of possible manipulation.

Recall that at the beginning of the year similar charges affected the Bavarian company BMW. Allegedly, the concern was not completely honest with its customers and supervisors in Germany.
