After first outlawing the trading of almost every individual Volkswagen AG version in the Asian country, South Korea now ideas to forbid the trading of an cluster of BMW, Porsche, Infiniti and Nissan versions after it managed a rather serious inquiry. The government inquiry has been moved out since August and it found that several auto brands have influenced authorization paper-work to make their cars road applaudable in South Korea.
It seems that no less than 10 versions from different manufacturers were guessed of using beaten or fabricated paper-work to get authorizations of road good. Among the 10 cars, we were able to find the Infiniti Q50, the Nissan Qashqai, the Porsche Macan S Diesel and the BMW X5 M, among the list.
Government allows next month time to companies to clarify their positions. After that, the government ideas to revoke the authorizations, decree sales of their cars and request officials to further analyze the case, Hong Dong-kon, Ministry Director, expressed at a press meeting to the WSJ.
The three manufacturers referred in trading the four versions mentioned above might also have to pay a had 6.5 billion prevailed (approx. $5.5 million) fine, thinking that approximately 4,350 cars were traded with indecent authorization paper-work.
Apparently, most of them had paper-work that had already been referred for akin versions, but it's not entirely definite if the manufacturers simply made a nonaccomplishment or if there was some offensive compete referred.
Nissan, Infiniti and Porsche have already decided to voluntarily hang the trading of affected versions after declaring that they have found nonaccomplishments in their authorization paper-work. BMW, on the other extremity, competed it cool and expressed that the X5 M will act to be traded until a closing official verdict is given by the South Korean government.
