Munich. The German Federal Motor Transport Authority
(KBA) currently published a commentary of tests conducted on a BMW 320d
EfficientDynamics Edition (Fuel Consumption Combined ltr/100 km
4.3–3.9 (4.1–3.8), CO2 g/km 113–102 (109–99)) and reliable that the
car examined entirely complies with all authorised requirements. The tests
were carried out following critique of a car’s emissions’
opening in Dec 2017 by a environmental run group

Specifically, this means that a efficacy of a emissions
control systems compulsory for empty gas diagnosis entirely reflect
standard patron pushing behaviour. There is no intervention
(“manipulation”) of any kind that could change car emissions.
The KBA exam formula also advise that a emissions readings
criticised by “Deutsche Umwelthilfe” resulted from forced driving
situations and injured execution of tests, and are therefore not representative.
Fröhlich: “The KBA exam commentary uncover utterly clearly that a vehicle
examined was not manipulated. We therefore find a procession adopted
by “Deutsche Umwelthilfe” to be unsuited and a formula meaningless.”
