This label is intended to support efforts aimed at reducing the average fuel consumption of motor cars. It provides information about the fuel consumption (litres per 100 kilometres) and CO2 emissions (in grams per kilometre) in relation to the unladen weight of the vehicle. The label must be displayed in a clearly visible manner directly on the vehicle or in its immediate vicinity.
It increases the degree of transparency for buyers of new cars, and thus helps them decide which model to buy. This decision has a direct influence on the operating costs, and in particular on the ongoing fuel costs.
