Member states exceeding nitrogen dioxide limits are relying on effective RDE tests to reduce emissions in the future and avoid infraction proceedings for failing to meeting ambient air pollution limits. A weak and ineffective testing regime will not improve air pollution or tackle the widespread health consequences. As a result, the only solution left to cities will be to ban all diesel vehicles. If this is necessary it is likely to result in a significant decline in sales and strongly impact on European carmakers that specialise in diesel cars.
