This week for Expert Car Picks, we're talking about the government's new 'Clean Car Standard', and the cars that we would choose within the restrictions.
If you aren't familiar with this standard, it will take effect next year, requiring car importers to meet progressively lower emissions targets, falling to 105 grams of C02/km average by 2025. If they don’t, they could face fines from 2023.
The move is designed to further push the demand for electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicle technology. There are currently no new cars with conventional internal combustion engines that meet the 105 grams per kilometre target. The closest is the 1.2-litre manual Suzuki Swift, which is 106 grams per kilometre.
