The Green Vehicle Guide (GVG) helps consumers by providing user friendly tools to search for and compare the environmental performance and fuel consumption of new light vehicles (up to 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass) sold in Australia since 2004. It uses the CO2 emissions values for each light vehicle as the key measure for ranking and comparing all light vehicles. In this context, a “light vehicle” means any four-wheeled road vehicle with a gross vehicle mass under 3.5 tonnes.

It also provides data on fuel consumption, noise and air pollution, giving consumers the flexibility to emphasise those aspects that are important to them when they are undertaking vehicle searches.
