Fiat Chrysler to pay $515 mn in US 'dieselgate' settlements

Fiat Chrysler agreed to a $515 million US settlement on charges it installed “defeat devices” on cars to evade emissions tests, the US Justice Department announced Thursday. The remaining funds will go to civil fines and mitigation payments to the US and the state of California. US officials said FCA’s EcoDiesel Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee for model years 2014-2016 were built with software designed to operate differently during emissions tests compared with real-world conditions.
