BERLIN (Reuters) - German Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer will try to establish during a meeting on Monday with Daimler (DAIGn.DE) Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche how many Mercedes diesel models were possibly fitted with devices to cheat emissions tests, a spokesman said.

The transport ministry spokesman added that the ministry would issue a statement after the meeting.
