FEV Past Presentation on Adaption Strategies for Real Driving Emission Improvement and Their Impact on RDE Testing Results

FEV Past Presentation on Adaption Strategies for Real Driving Emission Improvement and Their Impact on RDE Testing Results

Calculation of the impact of all German diesel passenger cars shows that the actual particle emission is dominated by EU 3 and EU 4 vehicles without DPF. Same calculation shows that EU 5 and EU 6 cars have similar impact on total NOx emission like EU 3 and 4 cars.
