What is the Renault diesel emissions claim?

Renault is currently being investigated for breaching UK laws as it’s believed that they misled consumers by cheating the emissions tests in their diesel vehicles. This means harmful levels of toxic exhaust gases may have been released into the environment and poses risks to both humans and the ecosystem.

The Renault diesel emissions claim specifically centres around the accusation that certain Renault diesel vehicles didn’t comply with emission standards during real-world driving conditions. These allegations have sparked concerns among car owners and the general public, who’ve become increasingly aware of the significant impact of vehicle emissions on air quality and public health.

From 2015 onwards, regulatory investigations have revealed that many vehicles on UK roads produce high levels of dangerous emissions. This is primarily caused by car manufacturers unlawfully installing ‘defeat devices’ in popular diesel vehicles. As a result, many popular and well-known car manufacturers, including Renault, now face claims from thousands of individuals seeking justice.

We’re committed to holding Renault accountable for their actions. We believe that Renault cheated emissions tests, and we’re actively pursuing compensation on behalf of our clients who’ve been affected by this widespread malpractice in the vehicle industry.

It’s important to note that a recent settlement of a case against Volkswagen, which arose from a similar issue, resulted in the payment of approximately £200 million in compensation to consumers in the UK. This serves as a precedent, and many more people may now be able to bring claims against other car manufacturers, including Renault, and seek compensation for the economic damage caused by this deceitful practice.

What is a defeat device?

Diesel is a combination of hydrocarbons that produces a range of polluting emissions, including high levels of nitrogen oxide, or ‘NOx’.

NOx emissions produced by diesel engines are seriously harmful to both humans and the environment. Regulatory vehicle emissions standards and testing regimes exist for the specific purpose of reducing the adverse effects of polluting emissions, including those caused by diesel engines.

The purpose of the ‘defeat device’, used by some manufacturers, was to enable vehicles to recognise when they were being tested, to artificially reduce the output of emissions compared to ‘real world’ driving, and thereby cheat mandatory emissions tests.

This means that the emissions levels of many vehicles on UK roads vastly exceed legal limits. We believe that car manufacturers lied to UK consumers about the safety and emissions performance of their vehicles to increase profits.
