    Petrol passenger cars 2001 and up. Diesel passenger cars 2004 and up.
    Do you know whether the EOBD legislation applies to hybrids and electrics?

    There are different variations of the Citroen C4, though I'm sure if it wasn't gas or diesel powered the OP would have mentioned it.

    Yes. Hybrids should also comply. Have to check for the first year, but it's no later than 2003 for a petrol/electric. A petrol/electric hybrid I think falls under petrol - so I think 2001. A diesel/electric falls under diesel - so I think 2004. That's for passenger cars. Normal rules for commercial vehicles also apply. Exception for hybrids is that with the MOT-tests you do not have to measure CO. Obviously because the petrol engine would not fire up.

    Only exception would be a vehicle with natural gas as main fuel. That may have an extension up to 2006.

    Vehicles with NG or LPG became compliant between 2003 and 2007.
    See: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/...1L0001:EN:HTML
    The rules for Petrol and Diesel:
    See: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/...9L0102:EN:HTML

    If you want you can also download these documents as PDF file.

    Thanks! I remember seeing these documents several years ago, but I don't think they had provisions for anything other than petrol and diesel.

    Do you know where they define "vehicles of category M1"?

    Exact definition is somewhere hidden in the EU documents, not related to EOBD I am afraid.
    As far as I know: M1 are passenger cars.
    N1 are commercial vans (Think Mercedes Sprinter but also Peugeot Expert or VW Caddy).
    Class I = empty weight < 1205kg, Class II = empty weight 1205 – 1660kg, Class III = empty weight > 1660kg

    The documents are changes to the original documents from the seventies.
    The NG and LPG exemptions are defined in 2001. Since then there have been numerous other changes.
    The big problem is that you can't download the document as it is today.
    You have to download the original 40 year old document and 40 years of changes (or changes to the changes).
    Hope you have a sufficient supply of aspirins.
