In today’s time pollution is at its peak due to various factors. Therefore, it becomes our duty and also the necessity to take the measures which curb the pollution level. Life has advanced to a level where we cannot eliminate the root cause of pollution. As it will hamper our daily life. The least we can do is follow the measures that do not let pollution reach a level where it destroys existence. Vehicles are regarded to be one of the major sources of pollution. Thus, the Government of India has introduced certain regulations which all vehicles are supposed to follow. In this segment, we present to you the best mileage BS6 Diesel cars in India.
However, before taking a glimpse at the good mileage of BS6 diesel cars, let us boost our vocabulary by knowing what is BS6.
Bharat Stage Emission Standards (BSES) was introduced by the pollution control board to keep in check the level of pollutants that each vehicle emits. 1st emission was set up in 2000 which came to be called “India 2000”. Further, more levels were set in 2005, 2010, and 2017 namely BS2, BS3, BS4 respectively. However, the government decided to launch the BS6 levels in 2020 directly.
WHAT IS BS6?
BS6 is the 6th version of emission levels. It is updated according to the latest environmental condition. According to BS6 norms, a car should not emit more than 60 mg/kg of nitrogen oxide levels. Further, the nitrogen oxide levels in the diesel engines have been brought down to 80 mg/kg from the previous 250 mg/kg. Moreover, the BS6 fuels have reportedly 5 times lower sulfur levels than the previous BS4 fuels. Sulfur is considered to be one of the primary pollutants that deteriorates the air. Therefore, it becomes extremely important for us to buy cars that have a BS6 diesel engine.
Here we present some good mileage BS6 diesel cars.
