The AIR Index was created to inform and empower car buyers and city policy makers with the real facts about vehicle emissions when making choices about car purchase and usage. A simple A-to-E colour-coded rating shows the difference between clean and dirty vehicles.
The AIR Index ratings published today reveal that the new diesel engines in the Jaguar and Land Rover cars tested for AIR(Allow Independent Road-testing), are some of the cleanest models for NOx emissions on sale in Europe.
Every car rated on the AIR Index is based on at least two independently sourced cars, over three separate tests, including at least five, 10km trips conducted on paved roads, using on-board Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) testing equipment. All of the vehicles achieved an A rating in the tests, the cleanest possible rating.
"The performance of our vehicles on the AIR Index reflects Jaguar Land Rover’s investment in class-leading technology and its hard-working, talented engineers. There are some stand-out results here with the superb performance of our new Jaguar SUVs worthy of specific praise, disproving the notion that all diesel SUVs are ‘dirty’."
