Pollution from tyre wear can be 1,000 times worse than what comes out of a car’s exhaust, according to a new study by Emissions Analytics.
Full hybrid passenger cars offer faster and more certain emissions reductions of up to 30% than plug-in hybrids, says Emissions Analytics.
Fleets should switch to hybrid vehicles rather than waiting for an adequate supply of fully-electric vehicles, in order to reduce real-world CO2 emissions.
The automotive industry could be facing a new emissions scandal as Emissions Analytics uncovers discrepancies in petrol car emissions figures.
Fleets are taking delivery of the first RDE2 diesel cars, cutting VED and company car tax, with manufacturers promising that more models will follow.
Up to 90% of new cars could already meet the stringent Real Driving Emissions (RDE) NOx limits set out by the European Commission, according to Emissions Analytics.
Fleets should not be too quick to write-off new diesel models on environment grounds. Simon Harris reports.
Aggressive driving on average increases pollutant emissions by 35% in rural driving and by around five times on the motorway, according to tests by Emissions Analytics.
Emissions Analytics has revealed that the latest Euro 6d-Temp diesel models emit, on average, 71% less particulates that petrol equivalents.
All new diesel-engined cars fail to meet EU standards in real-world driving for NOx emissions, research by the International Council of Clean Transportation has shown.
A number of diesel cars emit less NOx in the real-world than the Euro 6 regulatory limits, including the first testing under the new RDE regulation.
Euro 6 vehicles continue to deliver drastically different results when tested in the real world according to the latest additions to EQUA Air Quality Index.
Fleet News has partnered with the world leader in real-world vehicle emissions testing to help operators drive down fuel bills and reduce CO2 emissions with a new online car data service.
Real world’ independent car mpg rates are now available on the Fleet News' website.
Renault and Fiat are strenuously denying claims made against them over emissions in France and the US respectively.
Real world fuel economy data recorded by Emissions Analytics on its EQUA testing programme has shown a five percentage point increase in the gap between official and real-world mpg, reaching 29% in 2016.
Latest real-world test data from Euro 6 cars added to the EQUA Air Quality (Aq) Index shows that it’s wrong for car buyers to assume that two-wheel-drive vehicles are cleaner than four-wheel drives.
Hybrid vehicles are set to overtake diesels in the race for real world economy, according to new data from Emissions analytics.
Vehicle testing firm Emissions Analytics says diesels can be clean and govenments are highly unlikely to give up the fuel just yet.
For years, accurate testing of fuel economy and emissions seemed elusive. But a graduate discovered that by applying ‘clever maths’ a solution could be found.
