Answered By: 
The Mayor

As of April 1 this year, the Euro standards were as follows:

Engine Type

Fleet Numbers

Euro VI

14

EEV *

853

Euro V

3,151

Euro IV

1,683

Euro IV * for NOx and PM

(Euro IIIs retrofitted with SCR)

1,017

Euro III

1,917

Euro II

121

Total

8,756

* EEV stands for enhanced environmentally-friendly vehicle and in emission terms sits between the Euro V and VI standards for engines.

* The fleet emissions profile includes 1,017 Euro III buses fitted with selective catalytic reduction. This means that they not only meet the Euro IV standard for particulate matter but also for nitrogen oxides.

The entire fleet also remains on target to meet or better the Euro IV engine standard for these emissions by 2015.
