German publication Auto Bild has dragged BMW into Volkswagen’s noxgate scandal. It claims the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) conducted tests on the diesel-powered BMW X3 20d Xdrive and found it produced more than 11 times the allowed NOx emissions under Euro6 regulations.
BMW has been quick to respond with an official statement saying all of its vehicles comply with relevant laws and that it “does not manipulate or rig any emissions tests.â€
Despite this BMWâ€™s shares still took a hit, although nothing as severe as we saw with Volkswagen this week. Fallout continues for Volkswagen with its CEO resigning in disgrace and expectations more executives will be moved on.
