Daimler investigating emissions after US request

German automaker Daimler AG is investigating at the request of the U. S. government what it says are "possible indications of irregularities" in its emissions certification process.

Daimler spokesman Han Tjan said Thursday that the Dept of Justice contacted Daimler latest week. The company is conducting an internal investigation of its exhaust emissions certification process.

A message seeking comment was left with the Justice Department.

U. S. owners of Daimler'south Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC diesels recently filed a class-action lawsuit claiming the cars are programmed in a way that lets them emit illegal levels of emissions, similar to diesels made by fellow German automaker Volkswagen.

Volkwagen has admitted that its diesels were designed to beat U. S. emissions tests.

Daimler says the lawsuit'south claims are without merit and that the Justice Dept investigation is unrelated.
