This week, investigators commissioned the Frankfurt (D) prosecutor to search ten locations of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Case New Holland Industrial (CNHi). The accusation: illegal diesel technology to reduce pollutant emissions should be installed in the diesel engines of the companies from the production years 2014 to 2019. According to a list of the public prosecutor’s office, diesel engines from 1.3 liters to 3.0 liters are affected.

During the period in question, these engines were installed in the Fiat 500 models (meanwhile deleted), 500L and 500X, in Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio, in Jeep Renegade and Compass and also in the Ducato commercial vehicle. This could also affect many of the currently popular motorhomes – the Ducato is used by several manufacturers as the basis for camping bodies.
