Our cars are the most obvious way we consider our impact on the environment so it’s no surprise that what we choose to drive is important.
Both petrol and diesel cars emit carbon dioxide (C02), the main greenhouse gas linked to climate change, and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), a collection of gases that contribute to air pollution. Diesel and petrol engines have improved massively in recent years, with better filtration systems and more efficient engines meaning that modern cars emit only a third of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of cars built before 2009.
The main misconception around emissions is that diesel is worse than petrol. The truth is that they both produce emissions, but in the early 2000’s, diesels were believed to be significantly greener than petrol cars because they emited less C02. It turns out that this did not take into account other emissions that cars produce, such as Nitrogen Oxides (NOx).
No exhaust emissions while driving using electric motors.
When battery is depleted, hybrids revert to their standard engine, producing C02 and NOx emissions.
Regular charging gives hybrids incredible fuel economy and ultra-low emissions for shorter journeys.
Modern petrol engines emit only tiny amounts of air pollutants such as particulates and carbon monoxide.
Produces more C02 emissions than diesel cars but significantly lower NOx.
Petrol engines are generally more refined and give a smoother drive than diesel.
Diesel cars tend to be more fuel efficient than petrol cars and therefore particuarly suited for long distance driving.
Generally lower C02 emissions than petrol cars meaning less contribution to global warming.
Diesel fuel emits more NOx emissions and particulate matter than petrol.
Road transport (cars, trucks and buses) contributes to air pollution and global temperature rises, though it’s far from the only human activity that does. It’s a common misconception that cars are the main source of emissions which is actually not the case at all.
Next Greencar can give you a comprehensive breakdown of how the emissions and fuel economy of your current car. Compare against a new Mitsubishi to see how you would benefit.Car Emissions Calculator Next Greencar awarded the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Best SUV in 2015 for it’s fuel efficiency and green credentials.

All new Mitsubishi’s are built to the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, meaning they emit around a third of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of a car built before 2009.
All Mitsubishi cars come equipped with filtration systems designed to reduce emissions as much as possible.
Captures and stores exhaust particulate matter (soot), and then through a process called regeneration, the accumulated soot is burnt off at very high temperatures, leaving the filter ready to capture more soot.
Recirculates a portion of the exhaust gas back to the engine cylinders, reducing the temperature of the engine and therefore the amount of NOx produced.
All catalytic converters turn toxic pollutants like carbon monoxide into less hazardous emissions. A 3 way catalytic converter is specifically designed to reduce NOx emissions as well.
The April 2017 budget introduced tax increases for diesel cars, pushing them up one band.
VED on new diesel cars will effectively go up by one band, but there will be no retrospective charges on existing diesel cars. The company car tax rate on diesel vehicles will be 4% higher than for an equivalent petrol car from April 2018.
By September 2018, all new cars will have passed a strict emission test carried out under real driving conditions, before being sold
The UK Government has no current plans to change diesel taxation in a way that will retrospectively punish motorists
The strictest Clean Air Zones will not charge new diesel cars. Only cars older than 2015 (pre-Euro 6) will face penalties
Our award-winning plug-in hybrid SUV is the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid.
With a high efficiency 2.0 litre petrol engine and an electric range of 33 miles, the Outlander PHEV is our flagship vehicle, designed to meet the challenges of a changing world today.
Capable of 33 miles on pure electric power and a total range of 542 miles from a single tank of petrol, the Outlander PHEV can take you further for less.
With official MPG figures of 166 mpg, the Outlander PHEV is exempt from the London congestion charge and has ultra low VED and great benefit in kind for business drivers.
