Car manufacturer Ford Motor has warned US regulators that something may be wrong with their own handling of automotive emission and fuel tests. The manufacturer also hired external researchers to further investigate the case.

Employees of Ford drew the phone earlier, worrying that the company would sometimes deal with US regulations on emissions and testing in a strange way. Ford subsequently reported this to environmental supervisors.

It is not clear what exactly the problem is with Ford, but the concern itself emphasizes that this is not about software. Fumbling with the emission values ​​and testing of cars has been a big issue in the automotive world in recent years.

At Volkswagen in 2015 a large diesel scandal came to light. The German car group has been found to have emitted diesel engine emission values ​​during emission tests. Volkswagen has already pulled tens of billions for settlements, fines and damages as a result of the scandal.

Investigations into possible fraud in this area are also being conducted among sector partners.
