AdBlue® for cars and other passenger vehicles

 

SCR technology and the need for AdBlue® is becoming more and more common for cars and other passenger vehicles; such as 4x4s, mini-buses, MPVs or cars (please check vehicle’s handbook to ascertain if you require AdBlue®).

You can now buy vehicles equipped with an SCR system that uses AdBlue® from manufacturers such as : Renault, Peugeot, Citroën, Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, GM / Opel, Ford, Toyota and Mazda.

More and more manufacturers will introduce cars with SCR systems as the Euro 6 standard limiting nitrogen oxides emissions for cars and light-goods vehicles will be implemented in 2015 in the European Union.
