PARIS, March 20 France's consumer fraud watchdog
said on Monday it had closed its investigation into diesel
emissions by Opel cars and would take no further action against
the General Motors brand.
The DGCCRF investigation, part of a wider probe carried out
in the wake of the Volkswagen diesel test-cheating
scandal, "did not bring to light any evidence of fraud", the
government agency said in a statement.
The watchdog has previously sent files to prosecutors
detailing suspected emissions fraud by Fiat Chrysler,
Renault and PSA Group.
PSA, the maker of Peugeot and Citroen cars, agreed earlier
this month to buy Opel in a deal valuing the business at 2.2
billion euros ($2.3 billion).
