The ripple effect of Volkswagen’s emission scandal can be felt throughout the entire automotive industry. The latest automaker to be in the spotlight is Nissan who is being accused for cheating on emission tests with their diesel engines, specifically the one in their Qashqai compact crossover.

The Environment Ministry of South Korea found discrepancies in testing and real world emission data in the Qashqai after submitting over 20 different automobiles through rigorous testing. So far Nissan has denied any wrongdoing on their part and states that their Qashqai conforms to all emission regulations under Korean law.

A stop sale has been issued to Nissan in South Korea on the Qashqai and the company has been issued a $280,000 fine for the cheating. South Korean officials are also looking to charge South Korea Nissan CEO with violating the emission regulations.
