Notas: Sumario: Four years after the Dieselgate scandal began, the number of grossly polluting diesel cars and vans1 on Europe's roads still continues to grow and now totals up to 51 million. T&E's analysis of new real-world emissions data and official recalls shows an increase of 18% over the past 12 months and a stark 74% rise since 2016. The increase is in part due to new sales over the past year, and in part to new evidence on real-world emissions of more diesel models. Almost one fifth of these polluting cars and vans circulates in Germany (9.9 million), followed by France (9.8 million) and the UK (8.5 million). When numbers for Italy, Spain and Belgium are added, these 6 countries represent 81% of the whole EU dirty diesel fleet. The updated analysis also finds that the Volkswagen Group is responsible for more than a fifth of all grossly polluting diesel cars and vans in the EU (11.6 million). French carmakers Renault-Nissan (8.1 million) and PSA Group (7.2 million, without Opel and Vauxhall) also account for a major share of the dirty vehicles. Even if today's questionable software recalls are incorporated, the numbers of dirty diesels would only drop slightly by 16% to 42.5 million, provided these are carried out in full and to the uniform quality required across all Member States.
