The AIR Index – Rating For Euro 6 Cars Clouds Infographic

This infographic provides a visual representation of the lifetime emissions of NOx for cars rated in each of the AIR Index bands A (the cleanest) to E (the dirtiest), taking into account the typical lifetime of a new car (14 years) and its average annual mileage.

Examples tested by AIR have shown a car with an AIR Index rating of ‘E’ can produce up to 20 times more NOx during its lifetime than a car with an ‘A’ rating.

We provide practical solutions, including the AIR Index vehicle ratings, to ensure that independent, scientifically robust data are available to inform discussions and policy decisions which can help reduce the impact of harmful vehicle emissions. We are guided by a committee of the world's leading emissions and air quality experts who give their time and expertise to support our common goal of improving air quality and tackling the climate crisis. The AIR Index ratings and our expertise are used by public authorities and organisations across Europe to inform policy decisions. The AIR Alliance is a not-for-profit organisation and we fund our own testing and scientific programmes to provide AIR Index ratings free of charge.
