Carbon dioxide emissions intensity for new Australian light vehicles 2014

This information paper provides detailed data on the carbon dioxide emissions intensity of new passenger and light commercial vehicles sold in Australia in 2014. The emissions data complements existing benchmarks and makes comparisons with 2013 data. The data is broken down by vehicle make, model, segment, fuel and buyer type. This report focuses on vehicle emissions intensity, 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. This report also contains 10-year trend data in average carbon dioxide emissions intensity for new light vehicles sold in Australia between 2005 and 2014.
