PARIS (Reuters) - Renault will apply measures to reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions of its diesel-engined vehicles from July, the French carmaker said in a statement on Tuesday.

The measures will be applied in Renault factories for vehicles that have to abide by Diesel Euro 6b emissions standards, the company said.

Renault customers who already own a car with Diesel Euro 6b emissions standards will be able to get free-of-charge modifications on their vehicle from October, the company said.

A French probe found emissions from Renault diesels - and several other unnamed brands - in excess of statutory limits that had been met in European regulatory testing, widely acknowledged to be flawed.
