Renault is denying a report that its vehicles are equipped with software that allowed its vehicles to cheat on emissions testing. The statement Wednesday from the French carmaker followed a report in the newspaper Liberation, which claimed to have obtained an investigative document from the Economy Ministry indicating that emissions from two models – the Renault Captur and the Clio IV – spewed emissions more than 300 percent higher than the legal limit in real-life conditions.

The ministry’s fraud department handed its findings to prosecutors in November.
