Pioneering ‘polluter pays’ approach must use trusted, independent NOx data to be fair and effective, which only the AIR Index provides
The health effects of air polution must be enshrined in law to force a solution that actually works rather than creating eye-catching policies
Recent DVSA tests reveal that some Euro 6 vehicles which technically meet the legislated laboratory tests produced up to 20 times the NOx emissions limit during a track test.
25 July 2019 – The latest findings from the DVSA’s ‘2018 Vehicle Emissions Testing Programme’1 highlight the threat to air quality improvements in ultra-low emission zones (ULEZs) from poor vehicle emissions from some Euro 6 cars.
Clean Air Day is the UK’s largest air pollution campaign, organised by Global Action Plan.
London, 20 June 2019 – Clean Air Day 2019 is a timely call to cities across Europe to turn policy ambition into action, following London’s lead in reducing harmful vehicle emissions through its clean air zone.
Car buyers were recently invited to rank a group of cars from the cleanest to the dirtiest, based on the actual NOx emissions produced in urban driving. The cleanest car was a full-size SUV and the dirtiest a small supermini. No-one placed the order of the six cars correctly, and it was the same result when journalists and policy makers carried out the exercise.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC diesel in your showroom is becoming a problem. It arrived as a trade-in with the right spec and at the right money but there’s been little interest and no offers. With the target stockturn date approaching it will probably be traded-on, removing any profit opportunity. But, is there something practical that you could do now, to sell the car and retain the margin?
