Ottawa introduces new fuel efficiency ratings, labels for cars and trucks
OTTAWA - Ottawa is introducing new fuel consumption ratings and labels for cars and trucks.
Federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says the new ratings will provide consumers with a more accurate reading of a vehicle's fuel efficiency by taking into account factors such as cold weather, air conditioner use and rapid acceleration and braking.
New labels will also be put on model year 2016 vehicles, and will show how the vehicles compare with others in the same class in terms of CO2 emissions.
Oliver says the government will also begin publishing a list of the most fuel-efficient vehicles this year, which will include a online searchable database where consumers can go for information on different vehicles.
