Bosch to pay $131 million to settle U.S. diesel-emissions claims

German supplier Robert Bosch will pay around $131 million to settle claims from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles U.S. diesel owners and resolve all investigations by 47 U.S. state attorneys general into its involvement with diesel vehicles.

Bosch and its U.S. unit must pay $98.7 million to 47 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico and Guam, and $27.5 million to 104,000 Fiat Chrysler diesel owners.

Bosch is also making a $5 million payment to a state attorneys general group.

Bosch said in a statement that it neither accepts liability nor admits to any allegations but agreed to the settlement with the states to “avoids lengthy and costly proceedings.”
