On March 8, 2021, a class action was brought against Volkswagen AG, Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG et Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd.
Plaintiff alleges that the latter failed to comply with their legal and statutory obligations, notably by fraudulently manipulating the compliance tests of model years 2007 to 2018 gasoline-powered Porsche vehicles sold in Canada, as a result of which these vehicles emit more pollutants and consume more gasoline on the road than during compliance tests.
Any person who purchased or leased, in Québec, a model year 2007 to 2018 gasoline-powered Porsche vehicle could be a member of the proposed class.
