NOx Emissions From HGVs Fall By 70%

RHA ESTIMATES that NOx from HGVs has been slashed by around 70% since 2013, all attributed to the introduction of cleaner Euro 6 trucks.

The association projects that NOx will have fallen by 80% in 2026. Just 19% of UK NOx emissions came from road transport in 2021 and less than 15% of that figure came from commercial vehicles.

Progress has come at significant cost to the sector however, with Euro 6 trucks being more expensive. The RHA estimates that the industry has spent £2.2bn on upgrading fleets in ten years with an asset value loss in non-Euro 6 vehicles of £1.2bn.
