Fresh emission manipulating charges have been levelled at the German car industry.

Allegations of secret meetings between German car manufacturers to form a cartel that worked to manipulate emissions are doing the rounds. The Group has stated that carmakers involved were talking about AdBlue tanking infrastructure in Europe, and not plotting ways to get around the stringent European emissions laws.

There is an EU investigation into an alleged cartel formed between Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen, is ongoing and BMW has defended its position. It said in a statement, “BMW Group vehicles are not manipulated and comply with respective legal requirements.”

In the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, the BMW has spoken out and has now reaffirmed its position on the matter.
