The German environmental organization Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) has submitted to the Federal office of road transport Germany the claim in the amount of EUR 110 million against a carmaker Porsche, said Executive Director jürgen Resch DUH.
The reason for the claim was the company’s use of illegal equipment, which allows to reduce pollution emissions in the SUV Cayenne. So environmentalists want to set a precedent and again to pay attention to “deselect”. The representative of Porsche in Stuttgart declined to comment, reports Deutsche Welle.
“Every citizen must obey the law. If he is caught violating traffic rules or Parking rules, he faces a fine in accordance with the severity of his misconduct. The same rules in the future should be extended to automakers that still did not suffer due punishment in Germany due to the “diesel scandal,” said Resch.
In late July of 2017, the Minister of transport of Germany Alexander Dobrindt demanded from Porsche, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen group, recall 22 thousand SUV Cayenne throughout Europe. The sale of this car was also suspended.
Recall, the top Manager of Volkswagen pleaded guilty in the case of “diesel scandal”.
