Over 700,000 Mercedes cars recalled

Mercedes To Recall 774К Diesels In Europe Over Emissions Issues Germany discovers ?illegal? devices that may be in 1M Mercedes diesels - Autoblog

Unlike VW, which admitted duping official emissions tests and faces costs of about 26 billion euros in fines, buybacks and recalls globally, Daimler has rejected wrongdoing.

BMW recalled 12,000 diesel cars over the issue in February, while Porsche recalled 60,000 in May.

The recall will involve updating the engine control software in Mercedes-Benz C-Class models, as well as its GLC crossover SUV (seen here) and Vito van, a model not sold in North America.

According to Bild am Sonntag newspaper, as much as one million vehicles are equipped with those so-called cheating devices. He said the Australian arm of the European luxury brand was "seeking clarification" on what impact the German recall was likely to have here.

After meeting Daimler's CEO, Dieter Zetsche, Germany's Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer has ordered the automaker to recall 774,000 diesel vehicles in Europe.

After falling as much as almost 2.6%, shares were trading down less than 1.0% as of 2 pm EDT.

A Daimler spokesman said he would not comment on the BamS story, adding, "We are cooperating to a full extent and transparently with the KBA and the federal transport ministry". They are fitted with engines created to meet Euro 6 emissions standards but the German authorities say "illegal shutdown devices" are present which mask the vehicle's real-world emissions.

Questions are now being raised about potential defeat devices installed as many as three million Benz-badged models across Europe, including the G-Class, E-Class coupe, S-Class, and GLE-Class.

"The whole European vehicle industry is still stuck in this diesel quagmire, and everything that´s been done so far has done nothing to set it free", auto industry expert Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer of the vehicle research centre told AFP - pointing also to Italian and French automakers. It has specially built a 500kW vehicle it calls the Volkswagen IDR to attempt to shatter the record. After Volkswagen admitted to widespread emissions cheating in its cars sold in the US and overseas, regulators and consumers have scrutinized automakers' claims of compliance and fuel consumption. It denies it broke any Australian laws.
