Real Driving Emissions (RDE)

Real Driving Emissions.
From the lab to the road.

In November 2016, BMW Group launched the first models for which the new statutory RDE measurements (Real Driving Emissions) were performed as part of the emissions type approval [1].. In these RDE tests, the pollutant emissions, for example, fine dust (particles) and nitrogen oxide (NOx), are measured while driving on the road. This determines the average emission values which can be expected on a normal driving day.

Using your vehicle registration certificate or your EU certificate of conformity on the European Automobile Manufacturers Association web page, you can find out whether your vehicle was already assigned to an RDE family and which results were measured with vehicles of this family.

Once you have found your vehicle’s RDE family using the search function, you can use the family name to select the associated PDF file with the associated results.
