France’s customer fraud watchdog stated on Monday it had closed its investigation into diesel emissions by Opel and would take no more action against the General Motors brand.

The DGCCRF investigation, part of a broader investigation carried out in the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, “did not bring to light any proof of scams”, the federal government agency stated.

The watchdog has formerly sent files to district attorneys detailing presumed emissions fraud by Fiat Chrysler, Renault and PSA Group.

PSA, the maker of Peugeot and Citroen vehicles, concurred previously this month to buy Opel in an offer valuing business at 2.2 billion euros ($2.3 billion).
