Renault doesn’t use any software which deceives emissions tests, the French Government has announced.

Minister of Sustainable Development, Energy & Environment Segolénè Royal confirmed it yesterday following reports the car manufacturer’s sites were raided.

It comes after the Volkswagen scandal, which affected more than one million vehicles worldwide.

France is analysing 100 vehicles, out of which 25 are from Renault.

The investigation of 22 cars has so far been completed, four of which belongs to Renault.

The Ministry added some of the cars which have been investigated exceed the standard CO2 and NOx levels but didn’t reveal the names of manufacturers.

Renault said it is committed to developing a programme to improve the energy performance of its cars.
