Mercedes-Benz Set to Pay $2.2B in Diesel Settlement

As Mercedes-Benz takes tentative steps toward an electrified future, it will first exorcise a ghost from its diesel-powered past.

On Thursday, the automaker announced that it will pay $2.2 billion to settle a diesel-emissions cheating scandal in the United States.

 The settlement addresses claims involving emissions-control systems on 250,000 Mercedes diesel passenger cars and vans sold in the U.S. Under the terms of the settlement, Mercedes will pay approximately $1.5 billion in penalties to involved U.S. authorities, including the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Justice Department, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the California Air Resources Board, and the California Attorney General’s Office.
