Dirtiest Dutch car contest
On May 18th 2019 TNO got the opportunity to participate with measurements in the dirtiest car of the Netherlands contest, organized by the Toyota importer. Since similar parking lot measurements are planned within the uCARe project, this was a perfect opportunity to gain some early experience.
After the measurements were completed, the combined measurements of particles and NOx emission resulted in a ‘top 3’ ranking dirtiest cars compared to a standard Euro-1 diesel car:
- VW Golf GTD: 4.3 x higher
- Citroen CX25 turbo: 3.2 x higher
- Ford Galaxy: 1.7 x higher
