Like U.S., Australia revising fuel-efficiency label

  • 11-Oct-2010 03:20 EDT

A revision to Australian Design Rule (ADR) 81/02 on fuel consumption labeling for light vehicles was published Sept. 28, 2010, according to InterRegs, the online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. The rule currently requires all new passenger cars and light trucks to have their official fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures displayed on the label affixed to the windshield. The revision requires labels for pure EVs and plug-in EVs to also display electrical energy consumption in W·h/km and electric range in km, both in accordance with ECE Regulation No. 101. Compliance with the new requirements becomes mandatory for vehicles manufactured from March 1, 2011.
