Exhaust Air Quality Pollutant Emissions Testing

Before passenger cars can be type approved for sale in the European Union they must meet certain standards for exhaust emissions of air quality pollutants. In 2007, European Regulation EC/715/2007 introduced Euro 5 and Euro 6 limits. Since the 1st January 2011, all new cars have been required to be approved to the Euro 5 standard (although increasingly, many will be tested to the more stringent Euro 6 standard).

As with the fuel consumption tests, a single vehicle representative of a particular version is tested.

Because the testing procedures are intended to confirm whether a car meets a Euro standard or not, the type approval emission figures listed in the tables should not be used for other purposes, such as to rank a number of vehicles.

Cars not exceeding 2.5 tonnes laden Euro 6 EC Regulation EC/715/2007

Key: P- petrol, D diesel, CO carbon monoxide, HC hydrocarbons, NOx oxides of nitrogen, PM particulate matter.

Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles produce no air quality pollutant exhaust emissions (although the production of the electricity elsewhere has some environmental impact, in the same way that the production of petrol and diesel fuels has some environmental impact). To find out more about electric vehicles, please visit the Office for Low Emission Vehicles website at: www.gov.uk/olev. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders have also provided a useful guide on the subject which can be downloaded free of charge at http://www.smmt.co.uk/2011/08/electric-car-guide/.

Living with an electric car

MG Electric Cars

The Energy Saving Trust has produced a short film covering a range of issues around electric vehicles including hybrids, pure electric vehicles, grants, running costs, maximising range and recharging: http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/Travel/Driving/Electric-vehicles .

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) also have a series of three videos under the title Living with an electric car available here: http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/Travel/Driving/Electric-vehicles#Living. This series of three short clips is presented by Robert Llewellyn of Red Dwarf and Scrapheap Challenge. They cover most of the questions potential buyers may have including charging, range and the cost of fuel (electricity) for the vehicles. They offer a realistic and in-depth review of the viability of electric cars and vans
