Addresses several common misconceptions about light-duty vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas standards and focuses on Australia’s proposed light-vehicle CO2 standards and the effects they may or may not have on Australian motorists.

Finds that for cars, the cost for meeting a 2025 target value of 70 g/km (as measured in the New European Driving Cycle - NEDC) is between 250 and 500 euros higher than would be the case in a footprint-based CO2 target system.

Summarizes provisions of the first national-level remote sensing regulation adopted by China for diesel vehicles.

A report investigating the real-world emissions of four Euro 6 passenger cars—one gasoline and three diesel vehicles with different aftertreatment technologies, tested under variable conditions. The investigation was conducted by the Laboratory of Applied Thermodynamics, of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and its spin-off company, Emisia.
