Nissan and Porsche face allegations over false emissions information

Media outlets have reported that Nissan and Porsche have been facing allegations over allegedly providing false emissions information in South Korea.

As leading pioneers of justice for emissions scandals here in the UK, this seems to be yet another story where the governments and regulators are looking into emissions problems over diesel vehicles. Whilst carmakers continue to strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, more and more evidence keeps mounting up, and more and more legal actions are being initiated.

This latest action in South Korea is not the first, and will probably not be the last.

Allegations of false emissions information involving Nissan and Porsche

According to the Economic Times, Nissan and Porsche groups are reportedly facing allegations over false emissions information relating to diesel vehicles being sold in South Korea.

It was reported toward the end of 2021 that the antitrust regulator in South Korea is understood to have issued actions that Nissan and Porsche needed to take. They are alleged to have provided false emissions information about diesel vehicles being imported into the country, and a fine has reportedly been issued to Nissan Korea in the sum of almost $150,000.

The reports suggest that the alleged false emissions information issues meant that vehicles did not meet regulatory requirements.

The wider emissions scandals

The reason that we report on issues in respect of emissions from around the world is about looking at the potentially wider scandals relating to vehicle emissions. Since the 2015 revelations of the “dieselgate” scandal that hit Volkswagen, with Porsche implicated in emissions cheating in the UK and whose parent company happens to be Volkswagen AG, we always knew that we were witnessing just the tip of the iceberg. Since those damning revelations over six years ago, many more carmakers have been hit with fines and legal actions around the world, and an array of allegations have been made about ways that vehicle manufacturers could be cheating emissions regulations.

Of course, carmakers strongly deny that they have done anything wrong. Some deny that their actions have had any impact on consumers, and some state that they have complied with the rules and used legitimate “loopholes” with certain technologies deployed. But what is clear is that a great deal of work needs to be carried out to use the data that we have about higher emissions outputs and then investigate why we are seeing these issues. Any allegations made need to be followed through to get to the bottom of whether any cheating has taken place.
