On-road real-world emission testing in India highlights disparity between cycles, gasoline & diesel #TheICCT
Recent on-road real-world emission testing in India highlights disparity between cycles, gasoline and diesel 14 August 2017 The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT ) recently contracted with the International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) of India to conduct laboratory and on-road testing of three in-use passenger vehicles—two diesel and one gasoline—to investigate the real world emission performance of passenger vehicles in Indian roads. The results highlight the disparity between test-cycles and real-world emissions as well as the large disparity between gasoline and diesel vehicles. For laboratory testing, they measured emissions under the Modified Indian drive cycle (MIDC) (similar to NEDC), and the World harmonized Light Duty test cycle (WLTC); cold and hot start tests were performed for each vehicle and drive cycle.
