Britain said on Thursday all 37 diesel car models it had tested out on the road exceeded the laboratory limits for polluting nitrogen oxides, but only Volkswagen had used so-called defeat devices to cheat tests.It tested 18 older cars against so-called Euro 5 standards for nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission levels and 19 newer ones against tougher Euro 6 levels, with all the vehicles recording readings above the legislative limit during on-road tests.VW had previously said 1.2 million of its cars in Britain had been fitted with defeat devices and around 11 millions cars worldwide.Britain said the re-testing programme cost 1 million pounds ($1.4 million) and that Germany would soon be publishing results of its own testing of 56 vehicles.
