The New Vehicle Efficiency Standard will save you money at the fuel bowser, bring cleaner cars to Australia and give you more choice of new, efficient vehicles.

What a New Vehicle Efficiency Standard means for Australians

The New Vehicle Efficiency Standard (the Standard) will help:

  • save you money at the bowser
  • give you more choice of new cars that are fuel-efficient, low or zero emissions
  • reduce transport emissions, improving the air that you and your family breathe.

The Standard will commence from 1 January 2025 and apply to new cars sold in the Australian market. The introduction of the Standard keeps Australia on track to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
