Ford Under U.S. Criminal Investigation of Emissions Testing

The Justice Department has launched a criminal investigation in a matter relating to Ford Motor’s emissions certification process. Ford says it cannot predict the outcome of the investigation and “cannot provide assurance that it will not have a material adverse effect on us.”

The probe makes Ford at least the third major automaker to fall under U.S. federal investigation over emissions in the span of a few years. Volkswagen AG paid a $4.3 billion penalty in 2017 for misleading regulators and customers about its diesel engines’ emissions. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, which last month recalled almost 863,000 vehicles that violate pollution standards, faces an ongoing criminal probe.
