After years of ignoring real world driving emissions the Auto industry is under attack

German automakers have been criticized for building too many gas guzzling luxury cars. Vehicles such as the Mercedes-AMG G 65 SUV, powered by a 630-hp 6.0-liter V12 which pumps out an astounding 397 g of CO2 per kilometer, are polluting the atmosphere at more than 4 times the desired 2020 limits.

Why do OEMs ignore real world driving conditions? Learn more from this article.

Report on Developments in Emissions Testing Systems Report

Studies recently conducted by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and some member states have shown that many light duty vehicles, particularly Euro 5 diesel vehicles, on the market today are not compliant with regulatory emission limits under real driving conditions. Previous results collected on Euro 3-5 vehicles indicate that real driving NOx emissions of light duty vehicles have barely changed over the last decade, despite increasingly stringent targets.

Random Cycle vs Portable Emission Measurement System Report

In a report released in May 2013 the non-profit International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) found "real-world" carbon emissions for new cars based on fuel consumption, to be about 25 percent higher on average than carmakers claim. This compared to 10 percent a decade ago.

Even before the release of these findings, legislators in the European Parliament had proposed the introduction of a tougher testing procedure by 2017: Although some EU member governments have requested a delay until 2020.

Interview with Alberto Ayala - California Air Resources Board: Dealing with the DieselGate scandel

Automotive IQ in association with Wolfgang Thiel, interviewed Alberto Ayala, Executive Director/Air Pollution Control Officer from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District and former Deputy Executive Officer of the California Air Resources Board in the USA.

In this exclusive interview Alberto Ayala discusses the following:

  • Will RDE-measurements fully replace chassis-dyno measurements
  • Future testing of road emissions in gasoline vehicles
  • How will California's new On-Board Diagnostics program operate and can we expect PEMS like sensors implemented in each car
  • What needs to happen for each country to accept harmonizing proceeding for emissions legislation

Report on the EU Emissions Deadlines and the Death of Internal Combustion Engines

Two of the biggest news items in 2017 were the UK’s plan to ban all non-hybrid fossil fuel sales of new automobiles and vans in 2040; and the Norwegian plan to ban fossil fueled vehicles from use in 2025. A large majority of people surveyed about the UK plan believe electric/hybrid vehicles will be the bulk of sales by then.

The report discusses the following:

  • Moving ahead to reduce emissions in Europe
  • Latest technology to meet euro 6
  • Gasoline engines getting cleaner, leaner
  • Cold start and warmup problems continue

Report on the Global Market Situation after the DieselGate Scandal

In September 2015, the Volkswagen ‘DieselGate’ scandal broke and rocked the automotive world and changed the landscape of engine emissions testing for good.

Environmental campaigners have long argued that emissions rules are being flouted. According to pressure group Transport & Environment, for example, almost 90 per cent of diesel vehicles don’t meet emission limits on the road, accounting for millions of vehicles.

Expand your knowledge within this area, with this exclusive free report by Automotive IQ on the topic of: "Report on the Global Market Situation after the DieselGate Scandal".

TNO Presentation on Experiences with Independent RDE Testing

Expand your knowledge on this area, with this exclusive presentation, made by Norbert Ligterink, Research Scientist at TNO in The Netherlands on the topic of: 

"Assessment of recent changes in RDE legislation; guide for independent testing from surveillance to compliance".

The presentation covers the following:

  • Review of RDE evaluation methods and RDE boundaries
  • Light commercial vehicles as part of RDE legislation
  • Repeating an unique result; comparing different RDE tests with the same vehicle model
  • In-Service Conformity Statistics in the light of European air-quality limits
