NOx & particulates affect local air quality and are an urban challenge
CO2 is a pollutant which causes global warming and is a threat to the earth
Cars made after 2015, are built to Euro 6 standards. This requires them to emit around a third of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of a car built before 2009.
Diesel cars are still more efficient than their petrol equivalents. They use less fuel and emit on average 20% less CO2.
In Greater London, diesel cars account for only 11% of NOx emissions, while petrol cars account for 7%. Other sources include: industry, trains, gas boilers and many types of machinery.
Many diesel cars now have diesel particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction systems which reduce emissions.
The Government has stated that charging cars to enter a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) should be a measure of last resort for Local Authorities. All other alternatives should be exhausted first
There are currently no Government plans to change diesel taxation in a way that will retrospectively punish motorists
The strictest Clean Air Zones will not charge new diesel cars. Only cars older than 2015 (pre-Euro 6) will face penalties
New diesel cars are cleaner than ever. By September 2018, all new cars will have passed a strict emission test carried out under real driving conditions, before being sold
Every driver should purchase the car best suited to their individual requirements
