Most Diesel Cars Fail Real-World Emissions Tests According to New Data

A scathing new study has been released suggesting that 97 percent of all modern diesel-powered cars fail to meet emissions standards when subjected to real-world testing. The data, which comes from the EQUA Air Quality Index‘s Real-World Vehicle Emissions Ratings Programme, suggests that most diesel cars pollute by emitting more toxic NOx than is legally allowed and that a quarter of them produce at least six times legal limits. The study, which looked at more than 250 modern diesel vehicles in Europe, says virtually all manufacturers have diesel cars that pollute far more when they undergo more stringent real-world testing. Cars tested in the lab typically pass standardized government testing, but when taken out on real roads, nearly all of the cars tested emit more pollution.
