A day after the French carmaker Renault pledged action to meet all emission norms, they are recalling 15,000 vehicles before they go on sale to check their engines. “Renault has committed to recalling a certain number of vehicles, 15,000 vehicles, to check them and adjust them correctly so that the filtration system works in all temperatures”, French environment minister, Segolene Royal said on RTL radio. "New cars must meet the norms," she said, adding that the adjustment could be quickly done. "To correctly adjust an engine takes half a day," she added.

Renault sales director Thierry Koskas insisted the company was not cheating but acknowledged a problem had emerged between test and real road conditions. "In test conditions, we respect emissions norms," he said, presenting the group's 2015 results. "But when we are no longer in test conditions, there is indeed a difference between real conditions and control conditions, that is a fact," he added.

Shares in Renault had taken a dramatic turn after anti-fraud units conducted raids on the carmaker as part of an emissions probe, as a similar scandal has engulfed VW group worldwide.
