Bosch Settles California Diesel Emissions Inquiry With $25M Penalty
  • California Attorney General Rob Bonta and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) entered a $25 million settlement with Bosch for its role in the diesel emissions cheating scandals at Volkswagen AG VWAGY and Stellantis N.V. STLA Fiat Chrysler.
  • This settlement, which is subject to court approval, resolves allegations that Bosch participated in misconduct by providing hardware, software, and software programming or calibration services to Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler when it knew or should have known that these auto manufacturers were violating environmental and consumer protection laws.
  • Under the settlement, Bosch must disclose to California if it concluded a manufacturer would use or has used software to evade emissions rules.
