List of vehicles that will be Discontinued from April 1:

Several automobiles will be phased out as a result of the harsher RDE standards that will go into effect on April 1, 2023.
Real Driving Emissions (RDE) standards will be implemented. As a result, manufacturers are obligated to supply real-time emissions data for their cars, forcing all brands to either upgrade or abandon their vehicles.

Pollutants such as nitrogen oxides released by an automobile will be measured by Real Driving Emissions. Once the new standards are in place, automobile owners must replace their engines to reduce pollution.

Upgrading the engine will be rather costly, especially for diesel vehicle owners. That is also one of the reasons why many businesses have decided to abandon the models.

According to the new RDE standards, cars shall contain an onboard self-diagnosing device to detect the real-time driving pollution level. The gadget will monitor critical components such as catalytic converters and oxygen sensors to ensure that the required level is met. Besides from that, automobiles and SUVs must have programmable fuel injectors to regulate the amount of gasoline brunt.
