MILAN (Bloomberg) -- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will offer new calibrations to make its most recent generation of diesel vehicles cleaner on the road after completing an internal review of its cars following the Volkswagen Group emissions scandal.
FCA reiterated that all its vehicles comply with emission regulations and the company doesn't cheat on emissions tests. The automaker said it will offer the new pollution settings starting in April.
The company will also add a different filtering technology, called selective catalytic reduction, to more of its diesel cars starting from the second quarter of 2017.
FCA said it wants to adapt to new testing procedures being developed in Europe to better reflect real driving conditions. "As a voluntary measure, not mandated or requested by any regulatory authorities, FCA will be updating its Euro 6 calibrations with new data sets to improve emission performance in real driving conditions," the company said in a statement.
The European Parliament is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a compromise plan for new emissions-testing rules, after increased scrutiny of automakers since Volkswagen admitted last September to cheating for years to make millions of its diesel cars appear cleaner than they were.
The EU vote is on whether to let real-world emissions of nitrogen oxides exceed permissible discharges by as much as 110 percent between September 2017 and January 2020 and by up to 50 percent thereafter.
The assembly's environment committee recommends the proposal be rejected as too lax, though the plan has backing from EU governments, the bloc's industrial-policy chief and industry association ACEA.
FCA said it also supports the EU efforts, saying it welcomes the introduction of new regulations to provide "clarity for customers and the industry."
