Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Germany wants to recall and clean up 12 million diesel cars

Today, 17:18

The German car industry has to recall 12 million diesel cars to make them cleaner. The German government wants to do something about the polluted air in the cities. According to Reuters news agency, the callback action must start this summer.

All diesel engines with European emission standards Euro 4, Euro 5 and the most recent, Euro 6, should return to the garage. With a software update, emissions of harmful nitrogen oxides could be reduced to a quarter.

The entire recall would cost the car industry between 1.5 and 2.5 billion euros. According to a government spokesperson, the automotive industry will benefit from the recall, because more and more cities want to ban the cars if they do not get cleaner.

Diesel scandal

The popularity of diesels already declined after the diesel scandal at Volkswagen. The car maker had to admit in 2015 that it had committed fraud globally with 11 million diesel engines. The cars were equipped with software that lowered the emissions of cars at an admission test. But when they drove on the road, the cars emitted harmful substances up to 20 times more than legal.
