German court delays ruling on diesel bans to next week

German federal court to rule on controversial diesel car ban German court delays ruling on diesel bans to next week
Russell Knight | 22 February, 2018, 23:40

A top court in Germany will decide on Thursday whether heavy polluting diesel-engine vehicles can be banned from the country's cities in a ruling which could prove costly for auto manufacturers.

The Leipzig court is examining earlier court rulings from Stuttgart and Dusseldorf.

While a decision from the Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig in favor of anti-pollution plaintiffs would not order any vehicles off the road, it could open the way for cities to do so in zones where the air is particularly contaminated by diesel exhausts.

Diesel powered cars has been under scrutiny since 2015 when Volkswagen admitted to using cheat software to get around emissions tests.

The Stuttgart court had ruled in?July against the Baden-Wuerttemberg state government, which had attempted to halt the diesel ban by putting forward a plan to modify emissions-control software.

And the nation's automakers have been eyeing the courts nervously, as bans could affect 9.4 million vehicles not meeting the latest Euro 6 standards.

All the diesel adventure in Germany started a while ago when environmental group Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) sued nine German cities to make them enforce stricter clean air regulations.

Some 70 German cities have over the previous year suffered from annual levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions above European Union thresholds, with officials holding diesel cars responsible for 72.5% of the harmful levels of pollution.

France and Britain will ban new petrol and diesel cars by 2040 in a proposed shift to electric vehicles.

If the Leipzig court does rule for a ban it is likely to hit the residual values of diesel cars in Germany's used auto parc.
