- China is one of the fastest growing auto markets in the world. From 1990 to 2007, the total number of registered civil-use vehicles in China grew from 5.5 million to 57 million. Consequently, vehicle emissions have become an increasingly conspicuous contributor to air pollution in Chinese urban areas. Despite the fact that China has made much progress in setting up standards regulating new vehicle emissions and fuel quality, the understanding of environmental performance of in-use vehicles has been rather poor. This study contains some important insights regarding vehicle emissions control in China.
