Infographic Vehicle emissions and efficiency
In a conventional vehicle, only about 18 to 25 % of the energy available from the fuel is used to move it on the road, depending on the driving conditions. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drivetrain inefficiencies.

Article Air legislation in Europe
Air pollution is not the same everywhere. Different pollutants are released into the atmosphere from a wide range of sources. Once in the atmosphere, they can transform into new pollutants and spread around the world. Designing and implementing policies to address this complexity are not easy tasks. Below is an overview of air legislation in the European Union.

External Data Reference Mind the Gap 2015: Closing the chasm between test and real-world car CO2 emissions
Report of the European Federation for Transport and Environment: The system of testing cars to measure fuel economy and CO2 emissions is utterly discredited. This report analyses the gap between test results and real-world performance and finds that it has become a chasm, increasing from 8% in 2001 to 31% in 2012 and 40% in 2014. Without action this gap will grow to nearly 50% by 2020.

Infographic Troff document Flexibilities in the NEDC test approval procedure
Flexibilities exploited by manufacturers during the NEDC test cycle can be broadlygrouped into two categories: those relevant to the initial coast-down test and thoserelevant to the type approval test itself.

External Data Reference Copert 4
The popular, straightforward and simple to use emissions calculator. COPERT 4 is a software tool used world-wide to calculate air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from road transport. The development of COPERT is coordinated by the  European Environment Agency (EEA) , in the framework of the activities of the  European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation . The European Commission's  Joint Research Centre  manages the scientific development of the model. COPERT has been developed for official road transport emission inventory preparation in EEA  member countries . However, it is applicable to all relevant research, scientific and academic applications.

External Data Reference Where the Energy Goes: Gasoline Vehicles
Only about 14%–30% of the energy from the fuel you put in a conventional vehicle is used to move it down the road, depending on the drive cycle. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies or used to power accessories. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous.

Infographic Comparison of NOx emission standards for different Euro classes
Real-world NOX emissions from petrol cars in the EU have decreased significantly since 2000, in line with the increasingly stringent emission limits. In significant contrast, the emissions from diesel cars have not improved much over the same period, meaning reductions from diesels have not been as large in reality as originally foreseen in legislation.
