News on environmental zones and air pollution

The latest diesels are also “dirty”

Europe needs to be quickly equipped with clean engines. According to a study by Transport&Environment, actual pollutant emissions are higher than official tests, even for the latest Euro standards. One of the reasons for this is that drivers often drive faster than during official tests. In addition, the problem is not limited to Europe, because the old diesel vehicles are often resold afterwards to Eastern Europe or Africa.
