as part of Green NCAP ÖAMTC and its partners test different types of cars and drives to ensure they are compatible with the environment. There were three small cars currently on the test bench: the Fiat 500 (Electrician), Honda Jazz (Petrol Hybrid) and Peugeot 208 (diesel).
“It’s no surprise that the all-electric Fiat 500 is the cleanest option out of the three candidates. Green NCAP only assesses greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants as well as the energy consumption of the drivetrain from the vehicle – there are no emissions on electric vehicles. They are on the road and are highly efficient,” Max Lang, vehicle and environment expert at The Mobility Club, sums it up. But even if only in the current Green NCAP Fiat 500 five stars Check, and the test shows it in the meantime Other forms of driving can be environmentally friendly, too.
This is the method used by the file Honda Jazz (1.5 liter petrol hybrid tested) 3.5 stars. Lang explains, “Jazz scores well in all parameters. Particularly in terms of efficiency, it scores, and that’s because of the hybrid technology.” In many laboratory and method tests, an increased number of particles was found, but in general the emissions of jazz pollutants were at a low level. and greenhouse gas emissions – apart from carbon dioxide2– Emissions in very cold outside temperatures or when driving fast on the highway – in the lower-than-average range.
In the Peugeot 208 A similar picture emerges with regard to pollutant emissions: a particulate filter is good, but in some scenarios it also has to deal with increased emissions. “A better classification is prevented above all for greenhouse gases. Here, number 208 has very low values for methane and is for carbon dioxide2 At least it is still acceptable. In the case of nitrous oxide emissions, which are not regulated by law in Europe, ie nitrous oxide, there is still room for improvement”, explains the ÖAMTC expert. The efficiency of the Peugeot 208 is again good, so that in the end it does three stars resident.
