'Clean car discount': Supply standard ignores consultations - Imported Motor Vehicle Association

The government wants to phase in an annual emissions target over five years, requiring importers to reduce the emissions of the vehicles they bring in.

The 2025 target (105 grams of CO2 per kilometre) is in line with the average fuel efficiency achieved by Japan in 2014.

With cars being responsible for the majority of climate pollution, most New Zealanders would want to buy a car that was better for the environment, Ms Genter told Morning Report.

She said the target would encourage importers to bring in more climate-friendly vehicles, increasing the number and variety of models available.

"These changes would prevent more than five million tonnes of dangerous climate pollution going into our atmosphere and would make a major contribution to meeting New Zealand's climate targets."

The policies would help make electric, hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles a "realistic option" for more New Zealanders by reducing their upfront cost, Ms Genter said.

New Zealanders would also save thousands of dollars because of lower transport costs over their lifetime, she said. The discounts and fees would be displayed on vehicles available for sale.
