In our modern age where climate change and global warming are never far from the headlines, how we use energy is something everyone needs to think about, balancing the needs of our lives with the impact we have on the world.
While every facet of our daily activities contribute, use of our cars and what emissions our cars produce is often the most obvious way we consider our impact.Emissions Explained Petrol and Diesel Plug-in Hybrid
Contributes to air pollution, especially in cites where traffic density is high
Road traffic (buses, cars and lorries) contributes roughly 40% of N0x
28.5 million tonnes a year produced across all industry
8.6 million tonnes a year produced naturally from thunderstorms
Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) are a collection of gases produced from the reaction among nitrogen and oxygen during combustion of fuel at high temperatures. They are commonly created from industrial sources and also occur naturally during thunderstorms due to the extreme temperature of lightning.
Nitrogen Oxides are especially challenging where traffic is highly concentrated such as in cities, and are a significant contributor to air pollution such as smog that can have long-term impacts on human health.
C02 emissions occur from almost all human activity and are a huge challenge
In total, all transportation accounts for roughly 27% of global C02 emissions
Half the C02 released from fossil fuels is absorbed by plants and oceans
Half stays in the atmosphere and is one of the most common green house gases
Carbon Dioxide is a common gas with a multitude of applications including food, chemical, medical and transportation industries. It is the most signifcant long-lived greenhouse gas in the Earth’s atmosphere and since the Industrial Revolution has been increasing in quantity, primairly due to use of fossil fuels and deforestation.
Carbon Dioxide is believed to be a significant contributor to the increase of Earth’s average temperature (commonly called global warming or climate change), the consequences of which are complex and ever-changing, but include rising sea levels and damage to ecological systems.
All new Mitsubishi’s are built to the latest Euro 6 emissions standards, meaning they emit around a third of the NOx and a fifth of the particulates of a car built before 2009.
All Mitsubishi cars come equipped with filtration systems designed to reduce emissions as much as possible.
Captures and stores exhaust particulate matter (soot), and then through a process called regeneration, the accumulated soot is burnt off at very high temperatures, leaving the filter ready to capture more soot.
Recirculates a portion of the exhaust gas back to the engine cylinders, reducing the temperature of the engine and therefore the amount of NOx produced.
All catalytic converters turn toxic pollutants like carbon monoxide into less hazardous emissions. A 3 way catalytic converter is specifically designed to reduce NOx emissions as well.

By September 2018, all new cars will have passed a strict emission test carried out under real driving conditions, before being sold
The UK Government has no current plans to change diesel taxation in a way that will retrospectively punish motorists
The strictest Clean Air Zones will not charge new diesel cars. Only cars older than 2015 (pre-Euro 6) will face penalties
Plug-in hybrid cars and other electric vehicles represent a huge step forward for cutting vehicle emissions and there has never been a better time to buy one. The technology has evolved, making the cars capable of travelling farther and there are more and more charging points to enable longer journeys.
