A report investigating the real-world emissions of four Euro 6 passenger cars—one gasoline and three diesel vehicles with different aftertreatment technologies, tested under variable conditions. The investigation was conducted by the Laboratory of Applied Thermodynamics, of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and its spin-off company, Emisia.

Outlines the current procedure for the determination of fuel consumption, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, electric energy consumption, and electric range, specifically for PHEVs in Europe, highlights the most relevant changes expected with the introduction of the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) and discusses key differences between the EU and U.S. test procedures for PHEVs.

Evaluates the European Commission’s version of the proposed EU new motor vehicle type-approval framework, where it relates to market surveillance activities, and proposes specific ways in which it could be strengthened.
