It has been a year since the diesel gate scandal broke out which led to Volkswagen recalling vehicles around the world. A new damning research has found that all big diesel car brands, including Suzuki, Fiat, and Vauxhall are selling models that emit far more emission than Volkswagen.
The new study by Transport & Environment (T&E) found out that not one car brand complies with the Euro VI emission norms when driven on road condition. Volkswagen was found to be far from being the main offender in the carbon emission.
The team analysed test data from 230 diesel vehicles to rank the worst performing cars based on the real-world driving conditions. Surprisingly Suzuki and Fiat (which use Fiat engines) are topping the list of worst performers.
While Suzuki and Fiat were found to be emitting 15 times the NOx limit, the Renault-Nissan vehicle emissions were found to be emitting 14 times the NOx limit. General Motors and Opel-Vauxhall were not far behind with levels reaching 10 times the limit.
The report which is a data collected from investigations conducted by the British, French and German government, as well as large public database found Volkswagen to be selling cleanest vehicles among the lot.
