Daimler has to recall 60,000 diesel cars
Daimler has to recall 60,000 Mercedes diesel cars from the German Ministry of Transport in Germany. The cars all have tamper-proof software, which makes it appear during tests that fewer pollutants are emitted.
This is the Mercedes-Benz GLK 220, made between 2012 and 2015. Daimler has already announced that it will appeal the decision.
The German ministry has said the investigation into tampering software for diesel cars continues. In 2015 it was revealed that Volkswagen has been cheating for years in the acceptance tests of diesel engines. Since then, other brands have also been investigated.
