According to reports, Daimler will invest 2.6 billion euros ($2.94 billion) by 2019 for the development of next-generation diesel engines to help the automaker meet new pollution-measuring standards.
Bernhard Heil, Daimler’s head of powertrain development, said in a statement that they are spending the money on engine development and production capacities. Part of the 2.6 billion euros has already been invested.
The German automotive corporation will unveil selective catalytic reduction (SCR) on its smaller Mercedes-Benz front-wheel-drive compact cars by 2019, replacing existing exhaust systems that trap smog-causing nitrogen oxide (NOx).
Currently, only larger Mercedes vehicles use SCR systems, which need Adblue injection units.
