Light Vehicles‘Green’ VehiclesFuel-Efficient Conventional VehiclesHybrid VehiclesElectric VehiclesMotorcycles and ScootersWays to Reduce Fuel ConsumptionOther Transport OptionsMore InformationLight vehicles – cars, 4x4s, SUVs and small commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes – account for 10% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. The National Transport Commissionestimates that if Australian consumers purchased vehicles with best-in-class emissions, average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for new light vehicles would be 60% lower. The average emissions intensity for new passenger vehicles sold in Australia is 45% higher than it is in Europe. This is largely due to: 1. the Australian preference for heavier vehicles with more powerful engines 2. Australia having a lower proportion of diesel-powered engines 3. Australia has fewer government incentives for lower emissions vehicles 4. relatively lower fuel prices in Australia compared with Europe In addition to the air pollution caused by conventional (combustion engine) vehicles, residual oil can pollute the land, waterways and oceans.
