|Finkelstein Thompson LLP Investigates Accusations Against Mercedes for Emissions-Cheating Devices|
March 01, 2016
Allegations have surfaced that Mercedes-Benz, the German-based car company, installed “defeat devices” in their diesel vehicles that let them ace emissions inspections while otherwise producing pollutants at many times allowed levels. Mercedes marketed certain of its BlueTec diesel vehicles as :“Earth-Friendly” and "the world’s cleanest and most advanced diesel” engines, with “ultra-low emissions, high fuel economy and responsive performance.” However, according to a recently filed suit, it is alleged that on-road testing has shown that when the temperature drops below 50 degrees, the system that keeps the emissions low turns off, and can spew up to 65 times the acceptable amount of nitrogen oxide.
