Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

“Also Fiat Chrysler fraud with diesels in the USA”

Today, 17:32

Carmaker Fiat Chrysler, according to the US environmental watchdog EPA, like Volkswagen has used fraudulent software. According to the EPA, around 104,000 cars of the group, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ram pickup, emit too many harmful substances.

All models have a 3-liter diesel engine. After this disclosure the Fiat Chrysler shares decreased at one time by 16 percent.

“The concealment of the presence of software that adjusts the emission is a serious violation of the law, which may result in the pollution of the air we breathe,” said a spokesperson for the EPA. …

Volkswagen CEO

The EPA announcement comes a day after Volkswagen in a US criminal case pleaded guilty because of the fraudulent software scandal. Volkswagen must pay about US $ 4.3 billion due to fraud with diesel emission.

Earlier this week, a Volkswagen US big cheese was arrested because of the scandal.
