Italy has rejected Germany’s request to look closer at Fiat Chrysler’s vehicles to ensure they meet European emission rules.
Auto industry   FCA is under investigation in the U.S.
Italian Deputy Transport Minister Riccardo Nencini said the “insistence of the German government after the responses given by the Italian ministry is incomprehensible.”

Italy’s government is collaborating with the European Commission, Nencini said after the European Union’s (EU) executive arm said German authorities have expressed serious concerns on emissions of the Fiat 500x.

“We have repeatedly asked Italian authorities to come forward with convincing answers as soon as possible,” the EU Commission said.

Fiat-Chrysler is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department over its alleged failure to disclose software that violated emissions standards.
