Real World emissions for Ingenium engined vehicles.

Post by 0ldlandyman » Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:20 pm

Interesting article on the BBC news site this morning. There is a lab called Emissions Analytics which undertakes the measurement of "real world" emissions. Attached (hopefully), is a table showing how Land Rovers fair against Euro 6 NOX standards in real life. Unfortunately, they do not appear to have tested a DS but they have tested a new Discovery, fitted with a 2 litre Ingenium engine together with a 2 litre Evoke.

Their ratings are summarised in the right hand column of the table, E for the Disco and C for the Evoke.
E means it meets Euro 3 limits for diesels, whilst C means it meets Euro 5 limits! It could be worse, given that if you have a Qashqai 1.6 litre Euro 6 diesel, it doesn't meet any of the Euro standards! :shock:

It's possible that the testing of the Evoke was undertaken before Land Rover decided to up the AdBlue injection rates, in which case the Evoke/DS may actually meet Euro 6?

For info this is the website where you can view the vehicles they have tested.

I read the BBC article and thought it was very good and informative. ADAC have tested the DS here

This is a 2016 Euro 6 model, but I suspect before they upped the AdBlu dose.
Gone: SD4 HSE, TD4 HSE Lux.

I think you'll find that we were first with this on 22nd September...

But credit for the original article must go to Damian Carrington of The Guardian.
