“With the DOJ’s decision, we are taking another important step towards legal certainty in connection with various diesel proceedings,” Bruengger affirmed, corroborating an earlier report by the German newspaper Handelsblatt regarding the DOJ’s resolution.

The carmaker faced allegations of misleading consumers with false assertions regarding its BlueTEC vehicles, which were marketed as “the world’s cleanest and most advanced diesel.”
