Carmakers Penalized for Fudging on Fuel Efficiency

US regulators have announced that Hyundai and Kia have agreed to a record $100m (£63m) settlement for overstating the fuel economy of their cars.

The South Korean carmakers were accused of overstating the fuel efficiency of 1.2 million vehicles.

The penalty is the largest ever paid for violation of the Clean Air Act, according to regulators.
Overstating fuel efficiency means that greenhouse gas emissions were underreported to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Hyundai and Kia, they are the same company.

Found that out a few months before the milage scandal.
