For vehicles to be road-legal in the UK, they must comply with established emissions standards.
However, Mercedes-Benz parent company, Daimler AG, is under investigation in several countries following allegations that it tried to cheat emissions testing.
It is alleged that Mercedes-Benz fitted defeat devices into many diesel cars and vans produced between 2008 and 2018. These devices were designed to make diesel engines appear to be cleaner and less polluting when tested than they actually were.
In April 2019, the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) accused Mercedes-Benz of installing defeat devices into its diesel vehicles to limit emissions readings during testing. This meant that the results of these tests were misrepresented, and the emissions emitted by the engines did not comply with EU requirements.
People who bought affected vehicles were misled about their efficiency and environmental friendliness and have suffered losses as a result.

Mercedes-Benz recalled millions of diesel vehicles as a result of emissions concerns. This happened after the German Federal Motor Transport Authority accused Mercedes-Benz of installing a defeat device to limit emissions readings during testing of its diesel vehicles. Multiple countries are now investigating Mercedes’ parent company, Daimler AG, for installing these devices on its diesel cars and vans between 2008 and 2018 to pass emissions tests. These devices made Mercedes-Benz diesel engines appear to be cleaner and less polluting than they were. We believe Mercedes-Benz owes affected diesel vehicle owners and lessors financial compensation.
Mercedes-Benz has already recalled three million diesel vehicles across Europe and has been fined £800 million by German prosecutors. In addition to government investigations, Mercedes-Benz is also facing lawsuits in Germany, the United States, Canada and the UK.
