Alors qu’en France, près de un million de véhicules diesel des marques Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda et véhicules utilitaires Volkswagen sont concernés par le logiciel permettant de tromper les contrôles antipollution,
Une étude de:
montre que de nombreux véhicules consomment 50% de plus que ce qu’annoncent les constructeurs , et que les émissions de CO2 sont bien au-delà de ce qui est annoncé .
New cars, including the Mercedes A, C and E class, BMW 5 series and Peugeot 308, are now swallowing around 50% more fuel than their lab test results, new on-the-road results compiled by Transport & Environment (T&E) reveal. The gap between official and real-world performance found in many car models has grown so wide that it cannot be explained through known factors including test manipulations. While this does not constitute proof of ‘defeat devices’ being used to fiddle fuel economy tests, similar to that used by Volkswagen, EU governments must extend probes into defeat devices to CO2 tests and petrol cars too.
The gap between official test results for CO2 emissions/fuel economy and real-world performance has increased to 40% on average in 2014 from 8% in 2001, according to T&E’s 2015 Mind the Gap report, which analyses on-the-road fuel consumption by motorists and highlights the abuses by carmakers of the current tests and the failure of EU regulators to close loopholes. T&E said the gap has become a chasm and, without action, will likely grow to 50% on average by 2020
