Car manufacturers are racing each other not only to decrease fuel consumption but also CO2 Emission of the vehicles while improving their technologies.
We are glad to present the list of low emission cars here. This list can be viewed in two sections as low emission petrol cars and low emission diesel cars.
We can hear you saying, how a diesel car can have low emissions. It is easy with the latest technology of producing diesel engines. Especially small engines with Start & Stop feature. Meanwhile, automobile manufacturers such as Peugeot, Citroen, Opel (Vauxhall) have created low emission diesel engines that you are going to find in the list.
However in some cities in Europe consider banning diesel cars. So you should think twice before buying a diesel car over a petrol engine car with low emissions.
The list above sort cars by CO2 emissions and creates car emissions table. Mostly small petrol cars have lower emissions. And there is a good reason for that. Low emission small cars mostly have small engines and they are light-weighted. Emission of a 900 cc engine is generally about 85 – 90 g/100 km. And how much is emission of a 1 liter petrol engine? It is almost same between 90 and 95 grams per a hundred kilometers. We will be seeing lots of it next year, owing to VAG group already started to replace all diesel models with 1.0 lt petrol engines in cars such as Volkswagen Polo, Skoda Citigo and Seat Ibiza.
Buying a low emission green car is best thing you can do to environment. Even if you are buying a second hand car, because of low emission car tax, try to find a low emission used car. You can see our list as a low emission vehicle checker. If you do buy a low emission used car, please make sure to check your emissions in real. Sometimes a bad engine causes emissions more than you can imagine. So keep your engine maintained and keep driving a green car.
