Cars may be subject to recall after a statement by the management of KVA Germany that vans may contain illegal software that underestimates real emissions.

The German company Daimler, in all likelihood, will have to launch a revocable campaign, which will affect 260 thousand copies of the Sprinter model. This was written by the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag. In turn, representatives of Daimler, explained that all vans that came under review belong to the previous generation of cars, the production of which was completed back in 2016. The German KBA management informed the automaker that illegal motor control software could be installed in vans.

 By the way, such software can be found not only in the above vans, but also in other cars. It is noted that the company continues to cooperate with KBA.

 Recall, the latest KVA investigation was initiated after Daimler agreed to pay a fine of 870 million euros in September. Then the concern admitted violations in the field of diesel car emissions.
