There is only one constant in the diesel scandal: car companies and their managers have lied and cheated – and only admitted illegal defeat devices if they have been proven to do so. It is the same in a new explosive case. Here those responsible had always denied that fraudulent software was and is in use. But now we are uncovering the truth.
An expert opinion, which was commissioned by the US law firm Milberg and which is available to Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH), identifies a number of previously unknown illegal defeat devices in the diesel engines of a German car manufacturer. Using test drives and exhaust gas measurements by the Emission Control Institute (EKI) of the DUH as well as data from the engine software, the experts prove that a large number of different strategies were used to manipulate exhaust gas aftertreatment. The result: On the test bench, the vehicles comply with the statutory nitrogen oxide limit values; with a similar driving profile on the road, nitrogen oxide emissions explode by up to 500 percent and more.
Which manufacturer is affected, the expert opinion and the technical details as well as the legal consequences will be presented at a press conference in German and English. It is offered as a hybrid event, with an appointment at the federal office of the DUH in Berlin and a live stream via Zoom. In both cases, registration via [email protected] is mandatory. Please make sure to state whether you would like to participate digitally or in person. The 2G rule applies in the federal office, only vaccinated or convalescent people with proof of access are allowed.
