National Green Tribunal (NGT) had stopped registrations of vehicles with diesel engines from December 11, 2015, to January 6, 2016. Extending the above ban, Supreme Court of India has issued an order which puts a ban on the sale of cars with a diesel engine capacity of 2-litres or more in NCR from January 1 for three months. Around 36 percent of cars sold in Delhi are powered by diesel engines whereas 90 percent of SUVs and utility vehicles run on diesel.
Here’s a list of some cars that will be affected by the Ban-
Toyota sold 1058 units of the Fortuner in November 2015 which makes it a prominent vehicle in the premium SUV segment. It is powered by a 3000 cc diesel engine which violates Supreme courts 2000cc + guidelines and is likely to face a ban now.
