The Nissan Qashqai SUV is reportedly breaching EU NOx limits, adding to the list of cars that appear to be emitting far more pollutants than perhaps expected.
Some tests – as we have seen from the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal we are dealing with compensation claims for – appear to show that there are models polluting significantly more NOx on the road.
It started with the Volkswagen Group, affecting VW themselves, Audi, SEAT, and Skoda; then Mitsubishi admitted to manipulating results, and it has been alleged that independent testing of Fiat vehicles has found some alarming results as well.
Now it’s Nissan’s turn as the British-built Qashqai has been recalled in South Korea after claims they have also fitted vehicles with emissions cheating devices.
The worldwide and growing emissions scandal continues to spread!
