USA: EPA is relieved of the BMW Diesel engines

The list of major institutes and authorities that the BMW Diesel engine relieve, these days to get longer: The U.S. environmental protection Agency, EPA, has in the Person of its Director Christopher Grundler in detail with Wirtschaftswoche and Handelsblatt on the Diesel issue and talked to the special role BMW’s confirmed. In addition to Volkswagen, its authority, Daimler is also in their sights, BMW Grundler said, however, is clear: “We have examined all the products very thoroughly and no illegal technology.”

Although EPA speaks-Responsible Grundler only in the United States offered a BMW Diesel and not for European models, he takes up with his statement but also the suit of a private US law firm of the Wind out of the sails. Steve Berman is suing BMW in the United States and raises the Munich manipulated exhaust gas values, what EPA chief Grundler, however, put into perspective: according to His assessment, had Berman not sure about the Expertise and laboratory technology to the EPA, the Berman contractors are called in the EPO slightly derogatory “two men and a PEMS”, and plays to their manageable size and experience.

The business week sums up the Situation for BMW, the Munich-based by the EPA have nothing to fear. That would have EPA chief Scott Pruitt already in March, during a Meeting with BMW CEO Harald Krüger can discuss the specific contents of that conversation are not known.

Before the EPA had, among other things, studies by the ADAC and TÜV Diesel engines in the BMW Group relieved. Again and again the self-igniter from Munich were not noticed with higher than average well-cleaned exhaust gases, manipulation Software with test bench detection or the like came today.

The more annoying it is, that human error in the case of a small number of pieces of 11.700 copies of the BMW M550d and 750d has led to that the engines in workshops with an incorrect engine-firmware to be able to. The wrong Software installed either on the test stand still in everyday life, any benefits and was therefore unsuitable for a deliberate Manipulation, but as in the Diesel context is just much of a Top is thrown, took the white vest of the BMW Diesel is still a couple of completely avoidable spots.
