  • Site editor Sebastian Viehmann

The ADAC has its "ECO test" tightened and checked real emissions in traffic. This leads to massive devaluations in the diesel engine due to nitrogen oxide emissions and petrol engines due to particle emissions. However, some manufacturers have already reacted.

The ADAC has tightened its ECO test for years. Since September 2016, the club has measured 45 cars in terms of consumption and pollutants according to the new method. These are the results:

  • The winners in the current environmental ranking are electrical and hybrid cars as well as a natural gas vehicle.
  • The Stromer BMW i3 reaches the full number of points and thus leads the environmental ranking.
  • This is followed by the Toyota Prius 1.8 Hybrid Executive and with the Nissan Leaf Acenta a hybrid and an electric vehicle (94 points each).
  • The fourth place in the test goes with the Skoda Octavia Kombi 1.4 TSI G-Tec To a natural gas vehicle.
  • Teslas Model S P90D reached 6th place.
  • The best petrol engine in the current test is the Mitsubishi Space Star 1.2 Clear Tec Top (8th place).
  • In the bottom of the particle output is the smart fortwo. "The ottomotor of this car is not a direct injection, but still provides bad values. The special vehicle concept with rear engine must cope with increased thermal load due to the lower cooling, which increases the fine dust output sharply", So the ADAC testers.
  • The best diesel in the field are the Mercedes E 220D and the BMW 118D.

This is how the new ECO test works

The basis for the new ADAC Ecotest is the future WLTP cycle, but with a realistic payload of 200 kg and practical switching points. "An additional motorway cycle with higher speeds complements the measurement procedure. The evaluation procedure was also exacerbated. Both the valuation standards for pollutant emissions and CO2 emissions became stricter", So the automobile club. The ecotest is supplemented by real street measurements (RDE). "All four and five star cars are generally checked on the street by RDE measurements (Real Driving Emissions) to determine whether the vehicle is only clean in the laboratory or even in real operation", says the ADAC. If a car does not exist with four or five stars, it will be devalued to three stars.

That is why many cars are devalued

Most vehicles with combustion engine must have springs in the RDE test, i.e. in the real exhaust gas measurements in road traffic. "While many diesel have to deal with high nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx), most modern gasoline direct injections have to cope with a high particle output", So the ADAC.

“The results are an appeal to the manufacturers of diesel vehicles to use exhaust gas techniques in such a way that they effectively reduce emissions in all operating conditions. The two diesel models in the top ten show that this is technically feasible", says Reinhard Kolke, head of the ADAC technology center. Various manufacturers, including Daimler, Renault and Opel, have recently been criticized because they influence exhaust gas cleaning – supposedly for reasons of motor protection. However, such systems are illegal according to an expert opinion that was created for the exhaust gas investigation committee of the German Bundestag and should actually lead to withdrawal of admission.

This time the manufacturers learned

After all, the car manufacturers reacted to the problem of high particle emissions in benzindine injections a few months ago – many of them, including Daimler, Renault or VW, will install particle filters in their benzindire injection engines in the future.It should also be noted that electric cars have advantages in local emissions and also do better in the ecological balance (i.e. with the inclusion of electricity production) – in practice, however, the Stromer does not reach the ranges promised by the manufacturer, so that the individual balance sheet Can vary differently.The current ECO test is nevertheless a warning shot for car manufacturers and a slap in the face for German authorities, which have been shown to have failed for years when checking the car manufacturers in terms of test bench measurements .

  1. ADAC-ECO test not meaningful
    1. The economical diesel were not included. Z.B. VW 1.4 l 3 cyl. Diesel drive … I 100 km/ zw. 2.5 – 3.8l consumption. That would be one of the best. 2. Eco balance in e-cars was not included. If this were included, the e-cars are on a CO/2 emissions of luxury limousines. 3. The environmental degradation due to the reduction of rare earths lithium, graphite, etc… would radically destroy the landscape. Recultivation measures are requested in court. That is why e-mobility also has a huge cost explosion in the next few years. 4. The costs for disposal are also available for batteries etc… cause a very high cost. == All of this has not yet been taken into account.

  2. Alex has no idea
    1. Consumption: A VW EUP consumes 11.7 kWh/100km, which corresponds to the energy content of 1.2 liters diesel. 2. The ecological balance over the complete production and life cycle was included: Even with the current German electricity mix, Eautos are better than the most economical comparable combustion car.

  3. Why fake news, Hannes ?
    What kind of interest do you have to say false facts here ? It is clear in the article that German electricity mix with 535g CO2 was taken into account: And even so, Eauto blowing less CO2 into the air than the most economical combustion engines. And eutos can already be operated with green electricity today. ADAC and Site have researched clean here. Why do you want to distract ?

  4. Just three questions
    Anyone who can answer this plausibly convinces me of the electric car. Where should the electricity come from? If you would replace all the car in this country, you would need to take up the performance of about 15 nuclear power plants…..only for charging. Where should the vehicles be loaded? Plant all road edges with charging stations? Great idea….. What about trucks, buses, emergency vehicles? Police, THW, construction machinery, ships? There are not even concepts for that.

  5. Where does the electricity come from
    2. Never load all eautos at the same time. I invite me to a household socket for 5 hours a week. All 45 million cars of busts 20% of today’s electricity consumption. The energy requirement of the refineries alone today corresponds to 10% of today’s power consumption. My 16sqm solar system produces the electricity for 18.000 km per year. You can buy calmly ! : D

  6. Only two diesel? Yes, and only three petrol engines!
    Anyone who has now only read the heading gets a very wrong impression. After all, the article explains that petrol engines also have their problems, interestingly, of all places with fine dust, even though you always have the diesels around the diesel.

  7. What about the lifespan.
    How length does a battery hold? Suppose the battery is scrap after 10 years. Exchange would exceed the current value well then a car is ripe for the scrap after 10 years. The comparison of the CO2 values is also very difficult to determine. Pro: E-cars lower noise. No direct exhaust gases in the city. Lower maintenance costs. Fewer vehicles are parked on the street. In contrast: lifespan unknown by me 10 years of extremely high acquisition value. Night refueling at the moment very problematic. Energy that is lost by the self -discharge of the battery. Equally: areas are still sealed for parking spaces and streets. The number of traffic jams is no less cost at 100km if the car is filled with its own household stream

  8. lifespan
    The BMW i3 battery is designed for 20 years of service life. After that she is not "scrap metal", but – as described in the article – it is used as a buffer battery in energy networks (or in your own house for storing solar energy -. At the end of this use, it is still not a scrap: the valuable raw materials such as copper, cobalt and nickel are regained: as in the article.

  9. Environmental test ?
    It’s a joke that was tested here. Everything was only tailored to a few little things that are presented as particularly environmentally friendly. However, if you take care of the use and disposal of the expensive and environmentally harmful waste. Something similar was promised to us some time ago from the cheap and environmentally friendly stream of nuclear power, but today we do not even know how we should dispose of the waste environment, from the costs incurred not to mention only by reason of all, this earth can still be saved, But at the moment it looks rather dark when you look at the global destruction and an end does not seem to be recognizable.

  10. So long
    Coal power plants are still fired for electricity production and even entire villages are randomed to the ground and at peak times of electricity at maximum prices from France’s nuclear power plant, the topic of e-car is only eyewiping. What about the disposal of used batteries? They are hazardous waste, this was taken into account? So, long loading times, short range and anything but ecological.

  11. Yes and ?
    Feel better because entire areas are devastated elsewhere for the batteries ? As with the children, what you don’t see in front of your eyes does not exist.

  12. Driving with coal and nuclear power
    However, the ADAC has forgotten to count on how much nuclear waste and CO2 were incurred for the BMW i3 in electricity production. Unfortunately, it was also forgotten that much environmental pollution was blown into the environment in the extraction of raw materials for the battery. Anyone who drives their 20-year-old diesel stinker has a better environmental balance.

  13. Do not trust statistics that you don’t yourself..
    fake! Everyone who can count up to 3 knows that. And yet many plunge into the argumentative fray, keep this or that and the result is as it should be. The ecological balance is defined in this way or completely differently. On the one hand, it is unabashedly assumed, the electricity would come from the socket or opposite, as if the combustion of fossil raw materials only had these ecological costs and no other. Guys, we are just too many in the end, just know "St. Florian" And our hope that the chosen ones would be at least fairer, wiser for their money, looked far beyond the box,! We only talk about cars, but no one talks about cruises, air travel and far too much meat consumption!

    I still do not trust these tests to do any real objectivity because what is often accused of manufacturers is tested under optimal conditions. Are in this test z.B also older driving types of these variants or only new ones with fully resilient battery, is also being tested under poorer conditions such as z. B. Ice cold from -5 ° or more. What does the ratio look like for hot summer temperatures like if there are 4 people in the vehicle, luggage, a trailer has to be pulled… 1, 2 l of petrol or even electricity ?? Ridiculous. Spared me with your dyeing. Do not trust any statistics that you didn’t fake yourself.

  15. E-mobile and trailer ?
    Already laughed today ? Would like to see the test for today, set to 20 ° with heating and without beforehand on the domestic socket from the free (the wind or sun current preheated without an invoice).
