Hyundai Motor Company et al. (Civil Action No. 1:14–cv–1837), which was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on November 3, 2014. The complaint was filed on the same day.

(collectively, ‘‘Defendants’’) for violations of the Act. The California Air Resources Board joins the United States as co-plaintiff and seeks civil penalties for related violations of California Health and Safety Code Section 43212.

The vehicles belong to six car lines: Hyundai’s Accent, Elantra, Veloster, and Santa Fe, and Kia’s Soul and Rio. Under the settlement, the Defendants will pay a civil penalty of $100 million, with $93,656,600 paid to the United States, and $6,343,400 paid to the California Air Resources Board. The Defendants will also reduce the number of greenhouse gas emission credits claimed in their Averaging, Banking, and Trading reports by a total of 4.75 million credits.
