What is the emission standard of my Fiat Ducato motorhome?

A considerable part, of the motorhomes on the German roads is not as clean as it should be and affected by the Fiat Ducato diesel scandal.

However, it is often not very easy to find out whether your own motorhome is also covered by the so-called Fiat Ducato emissions scandal. One of the information you need for this is the emission standard of your vehicle. So the information under which emission class your motorhome falls.

But what is an emission class anyway and what does it say about the pollutant standard?

Basically, emission classes are a legal classification of different products according to their pollutant emissions. For vehicles, the classification is determined by the exhaust emission standard.

Internal combustion engines emit pollutants when driving, such as carbon monoxide (CO) or nitrogen oxide (NOx). Since the pollutants emitted by the internal combustion engine are harmful to the environment, certain limits and emission classes must be complied with when new vehicles are registered. This is intended to reduce emissions from road traffic.

Exhaust certification can range from Euro 0 to Euro 6d. Whether the emission classes are complied with is determined during the exhaust emission test prior to placing the vehicle on the market by means of defined test procedures. Until the end of August 2017 and up to emission class 6b, the so-called NEDC test cycle was still used.

Two new test procedures, namely the WLTP cycle and the RDE test, were introduced on 01 September 2017. These enable a significantly more accurate measurement of pollutants.

Fiat Ducato emissions scandal allegation against Fiat

The NEDC test cycle in particular plays a major role in the Fiat Ducato diesel scandal, as the accusation against Fiat is that it cheated on this test.

Many people therefore wonder whether their own vehicle is affected. In order to determine this, the pollutant class must first be determined. The pollutant class is hidden behind the so-called key number or emission key number in the vehicle registration document.

The pollutant class of the vehicle does not correspond to the number of the environmental badge. This only provides information about the pollutant group of the environmental zones, but not about the pollutant class of the vehicle itself.

You will find the emission code number in your vehicle registration document, in the registration certificate part 1. In vehicle registration documents issued after October 01, 2005, it can be found under item 14.1 (see illustration).


You can also easily find out the emission standard of your vehicle in our database based on your read emission code number.
