Renault and Peugeot vehicles get clean bill of health

The French Homolgation Authority (UTAC) has given a clean bill of health to Renault and Peugeot vehicles, affirming that they do not use Defeat Device software.

Following public disclosure by the US Environmental Protection Agency – of the existence of a Defeat Device software used by Volkswagen an independent technical commission was created by the French Government.

The purpose of the tests, which were carried out by French testing laboratory UTAC, was to verify vehicle compliance with regard to pollutant emissions.

The test results confirm the validity of the Renault and Peugeot’s choices in terms of pollutant emission treatment technology. These results attest to the absence of anomalies on Renault and Peugeot vehicles.
