Diesel vehicles are the single biggest source of toxic air pollution on our roads. They were sold to us all as the green choice, but car companies lied about how much they pollute.
Car makers manipulated emissions tests to make out that their diesel cars emit fewer toxic fumes than is permitted. They wanted to sell more cars and misled their own customers - and now we are all paying the price.
But the car companies now also hold the keys to change. They can stop producing new diesel cars immediately and make the switch to go 100% electric.
Electric vehicles are good for air quality, good for the climate and good for business and innovation. We already have the technology to make reliable and affordable electric cars; car companies just need to commit to change. Tell them to ditch diesel and switch to electric now.
