Due to the complex exhaust-gas after-treatment fitted to Euro VI engines, oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter in this scenario would be less than 0.5g/km and 0.01g/km respectively - so, very low.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption in diesel mode would be similar to conventional Euro VI diesel buses at approximately 1300g/km and 6mpg respectively.
