Fiat Chrysler seeks diesel emission certification from EPA

The U.S. Justice Department has been preparing to sue Fiat Chrysler if talks fail to resolve differences over the automaker's alleged violations, two people briefed on the matter said this week.

Previous to this news, back in January, the US Environmental Protection Agency publicly alleged that Fiat-Chrysler used undisclosed software ("defeat devices") in its diesel vehicles to allow for the emission of excess levels of various pollutants. The said case could leave the company with billion dollars worth of penalties.

Fiat Chrysler, keen to put to rest any allegations of diesel-emissions cheating, will be updating diesel vehicles old and new.

FCA says the filing "is the result of many months of close collaboration between FCA US and EPA and CARB, including extensive testing of the vehicles, to clarify issues related to the Company's emissions control technology".

Mayne said this week's changes are different from the ones proposed before January 12, and FCA said today that the filing comes after "many months of close collaboration between FCA U.S. and EPA and CARB, including extensive testing of the vehicles, to clarify issues related to the company's emissions control technology".

FCA believes the software update for 2014-2016 vehicles won't affect fuel economy or performance, just emissions. Fiat said in its statement it "believes that these actions should help facilitate a prompt resolution" with the Justice Department. Wyn Hornbuckle, a Justice Department spokesman, declined to comment. Regulators have said that in normal driving they emitted up to 40 times more smog-causing nitrogen oxide than the legal limit. On Wednesday, the European Union's executive arm filed a formal complaint against the Italian government for allowing Fiat Chrysler to sell cars created to evade emissions tests. If the fix is approved, FCA also plans to update the emissions software in all model year 2014 to 2016 vehicles fit with the 3.0-liter diesel.

South Korean military officials also said that North Korea has not had a controlled reentry back into the atmosphere yet. Other researchers, meanwhile, suggested the attack's targeted audience implies anything but a North Korean connection.

The Justice Department took the exact same procedural step in early 2016 versus Volkswagen, nearly 4 months after the German automaker confessed utilizing software to release excess diesel emissions in nearly 500,000 automobiles.

The emission-cheating scheme has cost Volkswagen more than $20 billion in fines and settlements, in addition to goodwill among some US drivers.

"They can not be classified as defeat devices because we're trying to defeat nothing", he said.

Washington opened the scoring on the same power play, when Backstrom released Evgeny Kuznetsov who set up Oshie for a 1-0 lead. The Canadian star was examined by a team doctor who ruled he did not need to be removed from play for further evaluation.

Fiat Chrysler told the European Parliament a year ago that the vehicle was not programmed to detect emissions tests or to deactivate the pollution control equipment after a certain period of time.
