    Only three of 20 car brands, Fiat, Citroen and Renault are on track to meet the 140 g/km commitment. Ford and Peugeot are almost on track.Fiat has already achieved the 140 g/km objective. Although Volkswagen started off with better CO2 figures than Renault (170 and 173 g/km respectively) the brand now has a much poorer performance because it reduced its fleet average emissions by less than half the rate Renault achieved (11 vs 25 g/km respectively over the period).Japanese and Korean brands generally have a disappointing performance.

    Results: brand-by-brand progress
    1.Fiat 139
    ------------limit for 2008 140-----------------
    2.Citroen 144
    3.Renault 149
    4.Seat 150
    5.Ford 151
    6.Peugeot 151
    7.Skoda 152
    8.Opel/Vauxhall 156
    9.Volkswagen 159
    10.Toyota 163
    11.Suzuki 165
    12.Honda 166
    13.KIA 170
    14.Hyundai 170
    15.Nissan 172
    16.Audi 177
    17.Mazda 177
    18.Mercedes Benz 185
    19.BMW 192
    20.Volvo 195
  2. 20!

    The top 15 sell a lot of small cars, thats the explenation. Of course a small hatchback with a 1,3 3 cylinder engine will produce more CO2 then for example a sedan with a 4 litre v8.
  3. Nope...Fita like Alfa Romeo & Lancia sell mostly diesel multijet (from 1.3 multijet 70hp to 2.4 200hp) engines which produce less than 140gr/km sth that reduces Fiat Gruppo's average.Volvo has no excuse and MB also sells small cars ....and polution is not related to cubism/hp.....there are small cars that polute more than cars with higher cubism.As for Us manufactors the results are logical cause euro 5 specifications are more strict than those of California

  5. 18 and 19, Mother nature can blow me.
  6. so, why do you think that Audi, for example, is "cleaner" than Volvo?
    Its engines are bigger...
  7. Strange, renault and nissan are "partners" and do share engines with each other. But renault ends up way higher than nissan?
  8. They share engines, But do they shar electronics and exhaust sytems?

    Edit : and I guess there are lots of Nissan models that does'nt use the same engines as Renault use.
  9. wooot 16 FTW!
  10. 8, I guess...
  11. 6 & not in the list.

  16. É só veneno nessa garagem !
  17. Wow thats quite a few! Any of those are projects or are they all in working condition?
  18. None of them is modified. They are as they came out of the factory. I also own a Mini Cooper S, but I had an accident with it and the car is in pretty bad shape. I intend on repairing it because I have a strong emotional attachment to the car, it was my father’s first car.
