Automotive

Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan and founded by Henry Ford.

DETROIT (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department and state of California have ended investigations into Ford Motor Co.’s gas mileage and emissions certification processes.

Ford says in its annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday that the DOJ and the California Air Resources Board told the company they don’t intend to take further action.

The filing says probes by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and its Canadian counterpart are continuing

In 2018 a group of Ford employees reported possible problems with a mathematical model used to calculate pollution and mileage.

Ford says its own investigation found that it appropriately conducted the tests.
