15 April 2020: Lower diesel CO2 emissions secured through retrofitting: The heightened importance of reducing climate change and the COVID-19 related reduced funding of battery electric vehicle infrastructure, makes it essential to reduce CO2 from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles at the lowest overall cost. New and existing diesel vehicles emit between 20% and 35% less CO2 than equivalent gasoline vehicles. It is essential to sell more new diesels and to preserve the CO2 benefits of the existing on-road fleet. This retrofitting reduces NOx, secures the lower CO2 emitting portion of the on-road fleet and could increase platinum demand by 780 koz.
