FCA has been allowed to skip tests in the emissions cheating investigation being conducted in the country, according to a report by Italy’s transport ministry, as reported by Reuters.

BMW, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and General Motors carried out tests which are designed to find illegal engine software but FCA reportedly did not record results for three of the seven models tested, which were a Jeep Cherokee 2.0, an Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.6 and Lancia Ypsilon 1.3.

FCA has denied breaking any laws and says that results for more models will be given soon.
