DaimlerChrysler to pull smart ad boasting ‘Extremely low emissions'

DaimlerChrysler is reported by German media including Autohaus to have undertaken to suspend an ad for its smart fortwo diesel model at the behest of a court in Stuttgart, which ruled in favour of an environmental group, which had complained that the vehicle lacked the type of advanced diesel particulate trap that would have justified its ‘extremely low emissions’ claim. The diesel smart fortwo has CO2 emissions of just 88 g/km, the lowest value of any current mass-produced car, and it will feature a state-of-the-art diesel particulate filter from the 2008 model year.
