In Germany there is a environmental organization Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) which every year rewards the most dangerous for the environment products. In 2020 for the award “Golden vulture 2020” claim 5 SUVs and crossovers, the operation of which in the city is absolutely meaningless.
The leader of this rating was the Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 AMG 4Matic, which is 100 kilometres emits 459,3 grams of CO2 and consumes about 19.3 liters of fuel.
Volkswagen Amarok Aventura has a relatively modest CO2 emissions (276 grams), but the truck also does not deserve respect from the experts DUH, as the diesel car engine pollutes the city’s air with particularly high emissions of NO x, because it meets only the old emissions standard for commercial vehicles Euro 6b.
Audi Q7 with a hybrid powertrain belongs to the class of “green”, but at 100 kilometers crossover emits 302 grams of CO2. Thus, the rate is more than three times the target value of CO 2 in the EU.
Also in the rating hit the Range Rover Sport SVR and BMW X7 M50i. First criticized for “voracity” and a high level of CO2 is 390 grams. German crossover emitted into the atmosphere 357 grams of CO2, also not is the best option, in terms of caring for the environment.
Another common gripe with these crossovers and SUVs – large size. Parked at curbs, such machines interfere with other road users. It should immediately be noted that the indicators CO2 emissions and fuel consumption – results of measurements, DUH. The “winners” of the award “Golden vulture” will be called in August this year.
