Motor industry launches campaign against diesel 'demonisation'

High particulate and nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines have been identified as a major pollutant, with air quality in British cities often exceeding EU safety levels.
You need to do more to distinguish between new diesel and old diesel
It’s no surprise a lobbying group made up of car manufacturers is fighting life-saving action … to cut air pollution
