Nissan and Renault, two manufacturers in the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance, are among the numerous manufacturers to have been implicated in the ongoing car emissions scandals, which has its origins in the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal of 2015. If it emerges that these manufacturers did cheat emissions tests, victims may be eligible to make Nissan and Renault emissions claims.
The emissions scandals may have caused untold damage to human health and to the environment due to the alleged excessive production of toxic emissions. Further, if allegations are proven to be true, customers may have been mis-sold their vehicles on false pretences, and they deserve some form of justice.
We encourage anyone who has owned or leased a potentially affected model to come forward, because we think it may emerge that their consumer rights have been breached based on the allegations made so far.
Our Nissan and Renault emissions group action
In our group action for Nissan and Renault emissions claims, we are responding to the accusations levelled at the two companies regarding the suspected use of so-called defeat device technology in their vehicles.
Defeat devices, in these cases, could allegedly circumvent emissions regulations. It could be software or hardware that is installed in vehicles to enable systems to, for example, identify when an emissions test is occurring. During testing, systems could then lower the emissions output to meet regulatory limits. In a real-world road setting, however, vehicles could emit levels of NOx emissions exceeding regulatory limits.
While Nissan and Renault strongly deny the allegations made against them, we believe that there is enough evidence to investigate that the accusations have weight. In fact, the Department for Transport conducted independent investigations which are understood to have reportedly found that there were discrepancies in NOx emissions outputs.
