Article reported that a row had broken out in 2012 over carbon dioxide regulation between Germany’s profitable premium carmakers (VW, Daimler and BMW) and their cash-strapped French and Italian competitors (such as Peugeot, Fiat and Opel).

The dispute centred on the complex but financially critical formula used by the European Commission to assign long-term CO2-cutting targets to individual manufacturers.
