European Emission Standards
European Emission Standards were put in place to improve air quality and health. To check your vehicles Emissions Stage go to Ford Etis and look up your vehicle. Emission Standards can also be found in the Fuel and Performance sections of brochures.
Every time a new vehicle model is released or if the model is updated by the manufacturer, the vehicle must have new vehicle type approval. If the model has not been updated, the vehicle will only need to meet the engine requirements that were applicable at the time that the type approval was given.
For example, if the vehicle model was released in 2016 but the vehicle was built in 2018, the engine only needs to meet the engine requirements given in 2016.
