Nissan has been drawn into the emissions scandal after South Korea claimed that is had fitted its vehicles with equipment to cheat pollution controls.
South Korea’s environment ministry said that Nissan had fitted diesel-powered Qashqai sports utility vehicles with “defeat devices” in order to enable it to pass emissions tests.
The Telegraph reports that Nissan has denied any wrongdoing,
and said it had “never illegally manipulated any vehicles we have
produced so far [or] used defeat devices in those cars".
