Executives of the French automaker Renault SA, whose offices were searched last week in a probe into vehicle emissions, will appear Monday before a commission looking at whether carmakers have broken emissions rules, Les Echos newspaper reported Saturday.

Energy Minister Segolene Royal said Thursday there was no sign that Renault had fraudulently concealed emissions with defeat device computer programs like those found in some Volkswagen AG diesel models.

However, preliminary results of tests ordered by Royal indicated that emissions from some Renaults, as well as some vehicles made by foreign manufacturers, exceeded limits.

Les Echos said Renault would be expected to explain why emissions from some of its models exceeded the limits and how it would correct the problem.
