Vehicle fuel economy labels
Vehicle fuel economy labels tell you how much fuel a car uses and how much it costs to run. That's helpful if your business is investing in new vehicles.
In New Zealand, the label must be displayed on new and late model used cars available for sale by registered motor vehicle traders and on internet listings.
What's on the label?
Vehicle fuel economy labels show the following:
- A star rating out of six - from six stars for the most efficient cars, to half a star for the least efficient
- An indicative cost of running the car for a year to help you compare different makes and models
- The car's fuel economy (litres per 100km). You can also use this to compare different makes and models.
Motor vehicle traders
If you're a motor vehicle trader or an individual selling vehicles on websites, you must display the label, when the information is available.
