Fiat Chrysler agrees to $800 million U.S. diesel-emissions settlement

Fiat Chrysler agrees to $  800 million U.S. diesel-emissions settlementFiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has agreed to a settlement worth about $ 800 million to resolve claims from the U.S. Justice Department and state of California that it used illegal software that produced false results on diesel-emissions tests, but still faces an ongoing criminal probe. The hefty penalty is the latest fallout from the U.S. government’s stepped-up enforcement of vehicle emissions rules after Volkswagen AG admitted in September 2015 to intentionally evading emissions rules. The Fiat Chrysler settlement includes $ 311 million in total civil penalties to U.S. and California regulators, up to $ 280 million to resolve claims from diesel owners, and extended warranties worth $ 105 million.
