It is known that with the aim of reducing the carbon emissions that lead to air pollution, the Center has brought a new policy to sell vehicles designed to BS-6 standards. In 2020, the Center has given orders stopping the sale of BS-4 vehicles. However, BS-6 vehicle standards specifically incorporate RDE provisions.
RDE stands for Real Drive Emissions. Car manufacturers will have to incorporate technology systems that display real-time data on carbon emissions in their Models . However, some cars built in the past did not have the technology to show real-time emissions data. The Center has set a deadline of April 1 for such old models.
In the wake of this provision, Renault Kwid, Amaze diesel version (which Honda has already discontinued), Honda Jazz, Honda WR-V, fourth generation Honda City, Hyundai i20 diesel version, Grand i20 Nios, Aura, Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Ignis, Ciaz, Mahindra Alturas G4 (an adopted Korean brand), Nissan Kicks, Skoda Octavia and Superb models will be discontinued in the Indian market.
