The fuel economy card aims to educate the consumer about energy efficiency in light vehicles with a total weight of less than 3500 kg.
Fuel economy card is divided into 6 levels of energy efficiency:
• Highest efficiency is an "excellent" level labeled in dark green
• Followed by a "very good" level labeled in green
• followed by a "good" level labeled in light green
• followed by "Average" labeled in yellow
• followed by "poor" labeled in orange.
• Finally, the least efficient level is "very poor" labeled in red.
