Peugeot Citroen emissions probe

An investigation into possible emissions cheating by PSA Group has found suspect software has been used in almost two-million vehicles sold by Peugeot, Citroen, and DS, according to reports in the French newspaper Le Monde.

The PSA Group has been under investigation by France’s DGCCRF watchdog over possible emissions cheating following the Volkswagen emissions scandal. The consumer and fraud watchdog has also investigated Renault, and along with its counterparts in Germany, Fiat Chrysler Automotive, over emissions standards.

Le Monde cites an internal PSA document obtained by DGCCRF stating the need “to make the ‘defeat device’ aspect less obvious and visible.” It also cites the DGCCRF estimating that "at least 1,914,965 Euro 5 diesel vehicles" sold by PSA operate with "fraudulent strategies." Le Monde estimates that the manufacturer could face fines up to 5 billion Euros (£4.57bn).

Considering they recently presented consumption figures for all their models and have been one of the most transparent car makers, I would be surprise if they had done something really wrong like that.
