BMW headquarters searched by police in emissions raid

German prosecutors have raided the headquarters of BMW as part of an investigation into the suspected use of emissions cheating software. The facility searched in Austria was BMW's engine plant in Steyr, where the company employs about 4,500 staff and assembles 6,000 engines a day, Reuters news agency reported. BMW said prosecutors were looking into "Erroneously allocated" software in about 11,400 vehicles of the BMW 750d and BMW M550d luxury models. BMW said the findings did not reveal a "Targeted manipulation" of emissions. Last month BMW recalled 11,700 cars to fix an engine management software issue.
