German city bans older diesel vehicles

The German city of Stuttgart has set a ban on older diesel vehicles that will take effect on April 1, city officials said, following a local court ruling last year.

The city said it would ban vehicles with engines conforming to the Euro 4 emissions standard from driving or parking in the city unless they are given an exception.

Vehicles with engines conforming to the Euro 5 emissions standard will not be affected at the moment but a decision on whether to ban will be made after examining emissions results in mid-2019, the city said.
