According consumed diesel models also less fuel. Because CO2 AusstoЯ hдngt on consumption, that come from the exhaust of diesel cars bottom line less of the greenhouse gas - even if the CO2 content per liter of diesel is tatsдchlich hцher. Closed for some auto experts is the "climate-friendly Diesel", however a myth because diesel fuel when burned even a little more carbon dioxide per liter ausstoЯe than gasoline. Thomas Koch, head of the Institute closed for piston engines at the Karlsruhe Institute closed for technology, says the Middle lдgen CO2 emissions in diesel by 15 percent lower than for gasoline. especially gesundheitsschдdliche nitrogen oxides (NOx), which is currently dominated by the discussions - despite the lower consumption more pollutants are produced in the diesel engine but.

But the Federal Court of Audit (BRH) called in a report on financial development, ьberdenken taxation.

The manufacturers want to provide by the end of 2018 a total of 5.3 million vehicles with a software update that is engaged in the in the engine management and emission control. Thus, the NOx SchadstoffausstoЯ to be reduced by 25 to 30 percent. Mцgliche disadvantages are a erhцhter consumption and decreased performance. Proved that's not. Many Umweltverbдnde, but also neutral traffic experts also question the degree of effectiveness or not keep it closed for sufficient. A more effective, but also much more expensive MaЯnahme wдre the repair of engine hardware.

Diesel umrьsten to EUR 6: How to
Are new Euro 6 diesel clean?The Federal Environment Agency warned in late April 2017 Euro 6 diesel that entsprдchen officially jьngsten emissions standard, stieЯen much more nitrogen oxides than they should. The laboratory limit lies at 80 milligrams per kilometer, in everyday life but there are 507 - more than six times as much. At the dirtiest in investigations Euro 5 diesel were with a NOx AusstoЯ of 906 milligrams, the Fьnffachen the limit of 180 milligrams. Euro-4 diesel, closed for which a limit of 250 milligrams is considered, blew 674 milligrams of nitrogen oxides per kilometer into the air.

Moreover, the production of diesel engines consuming, entstьnden also CO2 drawbacks was. Especially modern gasoline engines are more efficient than frьher, thanks to so-called full hybrids, so cars that kцnnen drive both the combustion and the electric motor. However, this hдtten turn kдmpfen with particle emissions, the Karlsruhe motor expert chef warns.
How do the sales develop?Germany was absolute diesel land to 2016: Last year, nearly all newly registered car was a Selbstzьnder.

Also closed for the all-new Fabia nдchste generation no more diesel is provided. Although Daimler wants to maintain the diesel, but expects almost a quarter battery electric cars on own sales by 2025. Audi's strategy is by this time a third electric and two-thirds Nitro before - ie petrol, diesel and gas. BMW boss Harald Krьger says, however: "Nothing points to a death of diesel The clean diesel has a long future ahead of him.." Toyota already has for Lдngerem to alternative fuels, hybrid pioneer is one of the groЯen profiteers on the German car market. About all manufacturers hovers the EU target, after 2021, the FlottenausstoЯ may be as low as 95 g CO2 / km per vehicle sold. Otherwise threaten high penalties.

The Automobile Club rдt not grundsдtzlich on the diesel. Potential buyers should make sure that a new car (low in real operating nitrogen oxide emissions NOx) having. "This is in compliance with the September closed for new models prescribed new Euro-6d-TEMP-standard or the Euro from 2020 gьltigen-6d-norm of the case," says an ADAC spokesman.
