Average CO2-emissions of newly registered passenger cars 2000 to 2019 (provisional results)

On behalf of the Environment Agency Austria (Umweltbundesamt GmbH) and in accordance with the regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 setting emission performance standards for new passenger cars, Statistics Austria evaluates the CO2-emissions of newly registered passenger cars compiled on basic data transferred by Austria’s association of insurance companies (VVO).

Provisional results 2019 showed that the average CO2-emissions - based on measurements within the framework of the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) - of petrol and diesel driven passenger cars amounted to 128 g/km and 133 g/km. According to the new „Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure“ (WLTP), the average value for newly registered petrol cars in 2019 was 150 g/km, for diesel cars it reached 163 g/km.
