Low emissions cars

What’s low-emissions all about?

As governments around the world strive to meet strict air pollution targets, cars and vans are increasingly being placed under scrutiny. Lowering overall emissions is a key aim for legislators, car manufacturers and fleet managers, with private motorists also becoming more and more green-minded as well.

What are low emissions cars?

With legal and technological changes occurring thick and fast, there’s no set definition of what a low emissions vehicle is but the general consensus is that the umbrella term refers to vehicles in road tax (also known as Vehicle Excise Duty or VED) bands A to C, meaning they emit 120g/km of CO2 or less. This means that low emissions cars can be diesel, petrol, hybrid or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), coming in all kinds of shapes and sizes, from the 95g/km petrol Citroen C1 VTi 68 and 89g/km diesel BMW 116d EfficientDynamics to Lexus’ 82g/km CT200h hybrid and Audi’s 113g/km Audi A6 TDI Ultra saloon with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Oh, you mean really low?

Then you need to drop down to the next page in this section, which talks all about Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicles, or ULEV for short. And if you want to drive a car that emits absolutely no CO2 out of the back, then fully electric cars or ‘pure EVs’ are for you.
