Hot on the heels of Volkswagen’s huge diesel scandal, BMW could also get into trouble as it seems they were also cheating on emissions tests

Hot on the heels of Volkswagen’s huge diesel scandal, BMW could also get into trouble as it seems they were also cheating on emissions tests.

AutoBild reports the X3 xDrive 20d has failed during a street test performed by the International Council on Clean Transportation, showing more than eleven times higher emissions of nitric oxide than permitted by the European Union.

The information is still not confirmed by the Bavarian manufacturer, but the shares of the company have already fallen with more than 8% since Thursday morning.

Full details about the research are expected tomorrow with the next issue of the AutoBild magazine.
