Carbon emissions from new Australian vehicles 2013

This information paper provides detailed data on the carbon dioxide emissions performance of new passenger and light commercial vehicles sold in Australia in 2013. The information establishes a new benchmark and compares this with the previous year’s new vehicle emissions data. The paper also includes a detailed carbon dioxide emissions breakdown by vehicle make, vehicle segment and buyer type. This report focuses on vehicle emissions performance, which is measured in terms of grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre (g/km). This is a measure of vehicle efficiency rather than a measure of actual vehicle emissions, which depends on many factors such as distance travelled, the nature of the driving and road and traffic conditions. Fleet-wide vehicle emissions depend on many factors including consumer preference (such as, vehicle type, engine size and power, fuel type, and transmission type) among other things. Consumer preferences can also be influenced by government policies and regulations, industry influence and fuel prices. These consumer preferences and influences are explored further in the form of a case study analysing the key differences between Australia and the United Kingdom.
