We're pretty sure by now you're familiar with the Dieselgate scandal - in which certain Diesel-engined cars from multiple automakers were fitted with cheat devices designed to circumvent emissions regulations around the world.

Well now, there's a new scandal: the amount of emissions that plug-in hybrids emit in the real world - versus what they supposedly emit on paper.

Unlike the Dieselgate debacle however, there seems to be another cause for certain plug-in hybrids emitting far higher emissions than the companies that make them claim.
