According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, the new standards are meant to take into account of the ultrafine particles emitted by the new generation of direct injection gas engines.

I know my DI puts out soot. I clean it off the tailpipe regularly.

Considering how portly and overweight cars have to be these days to meet safety regulations, it's kinda necessary.

It's be nice if people stopped being scared of fission. Where is my nuclear powered car?

A fine example of the EU's endless witchhunt against the ICE and VAGs engineering priorities (or lack thereof). The engineering departments that have been working on reducing GDI soot will be the ones with the solution, not VAG. We're talking about the company that uses advanced valve closing (vs retarded IVC) Miller valve timing and tried to create their very own combustion cycle (Budack cycle, named after their own Ralf Budack). What a set of clowns.

This is why I stated before this was news that gasoline powered vehicles will have a GPF, Gasoline Particulate Filter just like diesels.

Pretty soon, only the rich will be able to afford new cars.
