    It's great to see that they ban plug in hybrids as well - only pure EVs allowed.

    It will be quiet in Blighty. This would have stirred more response in the EV community a year ago or so.... I guess more countries will follow.

    Perhaps some context will help ?

    The on-road NOx emissions of diesel cars in urban driving is in the range of 500 - 1500 mg per km
    Compare that to 3 mg per km, e.g in the Toyota hybrids.

    More than the graphic you posted allows.
    ICCT is the organization that exposed the deception, and they later published on-road emissions data from a couple of diesels:

    The original AE article explicitly mentioned a hybrid sale ban too... That was later withdrawn. And AE obviously changed the text. It should be left out from the thread title too. Don't know how to do that.
