German carmaker Daimler ordered to recall 774,000 cars in Europe

Germany's road vehicle authority KBA has found five "illegal switch-off devices" in Daimler auto engines, newspaper Bild am Sonntag (BamS) reported on Sunday. For example, Daimler said last month it plans to appeal the KBA recall order of the Mercedes Vito van powered by a 1.6-liter diesel.

Daimler shares fell following a report that up to 1 million Daimler cars contain illegal defeat devices, as Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche prepared to meet the transport minister on Monday. The firm's compression ignition engines use urea nitrate liquids to naturalize nitrogen oxide emissions in exhaust fumes.

KBA assumes the devices were meant to help a broad majority of Daimler's new diesel cars pass recently introduced Euro 6 emissions standards.

KBA believes Daimler's Euro 6 diesels are emitting polluting gases in excess of what the regulations say and the exhaust systems of those cars are featuring manipulating control software.

Germany's Transport Ministry has ordered an official recall for 238,000 vehicles sold in Daimler's home market.

Since rival Volkswagen admitted in 2015 to cheating US emissions tests, German carmakers including VW, Daimler and BMW have faced a backlash against diesel technology in which they have invested billions of euros.

Recent weeks have seen Germany's KBA vehicle licensing authority hit Volkswagen subsidiaries Audi and Porsche with mass recall orders over their engine control software, as well as a smaller batch of cars from rival BMW. That controversy has cost VW about $30 billion in fines.
