Average on-road nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions (in g/km)

Chapter 6 chart Average on-road nitrogen oxide emissions (in g/km)

While trucks in line with the Euro V emissions standard still had a real-world nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission level about five times that of Euro 5 diesel passenger cars, trucks have become significantly cleaner in past years while this is not necessarily the case for the average diesel car. In fact, a modern Euro VI diesel truck emits less NOx on the road than an average Euro 6 diesel car. The NOx emission level of gasoline cars is less than one tenth of that of a diesel car.
