false claims!

Recommended Posts


Cars promoted as eco-friendly got criticised  for pumping out up to
56 per cent more carbon dioxide than the manufacturers claim.

 
the Honda Civic hybrid, performed so badly in tests
that their environmental claims were dismissed as a gimmick.


Road tests were carried out by Auto Express magazine, which accused
manufacturers of attempting to cash in on concerns about global warming.

The Honda Civic hybrid, regarded widely as one of the lowest emitting
cars, performed the worst in the tests. Instead of the 109g/km of CO2
claimed in the makers' specifications, it was found to put out 171g/km.

i dont know to what extent this is true. bcaz these cars are being tested world wide in most of the countries in normal road conditions and then only they come on road. if the emissions are higher than the manufacturers claims, its realy gonna be a bad thing for honda and its gonna affect its reputation. it does need a re-checking....

maybe one company might claim wrong figures, but all the companies listed in the article? especially when all of them are very reputed? not likely.

If you read the comments below the article, they talk about US Gallon and British Gallon, maybe some such issue might have pushed the reading upwards.
