CNHi Named in Emissions Fraud Investigation

German prosecutors said last week they were searching offices at CNH Industrial and Fiat Chrysler as part of an international fraud investigation over emissions.

The investigation targets potentially illegal emissions software found in engines used in CNH Industrial’s Iveco trucks and three vehicles made by Fiat Chrysler.

A statement from the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office does not name the companies but says searches in Germany, Italy and Switzerland focus on individuals at international automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers.

CNH Industrial confirmed that a number of its offices in Europe have been visited by investigators after a request by German magistrates and that it was cooperating fully with authorities.
