Description

This discussion paper examines eight potential measures to encourage the uptake of more fuel efficient, low carbon emission vehicles. They are:

• CO2 emission targets for new light vehicles (voluntary or mandatory)
• Differential registration and stamp duty charges for new light vehicles based on CO2 emissions
• Direct financial incentives for low emission vehicles
• Fleet purchasing frameworks which incorporate CO2 reduction objectives
• Inclusion of fuel consumption and CO2 data in new vehicle advertisements
• International standards/labelling requirements for non-engine components which impact on CO2 emissions
• An environmental rating scheme for heavy vehicles
• A technology demonstration scheme for Australian commercial road transport fleets linked to CO2 outcomes.
