Diesel cars sold in 2015 emit 50% more NOx emissions than anyone thought

Last updated on May 16th, 2017  at 3:56 pm by Tibi Puiu

Key findings from the SEI report include:

•Heavy-duty vehicles, such as commercial trucks and buses, were by far the largest contributor worldwide, accounting for 76% of the total excess gas emissions.

•Five of the 11 markets that were analyzed, Brazil, China, the EU, India, and the US, produced 90% of that.

•For light-duty vehicles, such as passenger cars, trucks, and vans, the European Union produced nearly 70% of the excess diesel nitrogen oxide emissions.

•On-road diesel vehicles contribute 55% of global surface transportation NOx emissions, consistent with other estimates.

•The excess diesel vehicle NOx emissions in 2015 were linked to 38,000 premature deaths worldwide. Most of these deaths were linked to the European Union, China, and India.
