Emissions Norms: The government’s rules and regulations regarding petrol and diesel automobiles are making difficult for companies to follow. But these laws are for the welfare for not only our country but for the whole world. Because of these norms everything is coming under control. But still as we know many companies like Kia, Hyundai, Volkswagen and many other manufactured some vehicles that do not come under these mandated fleet emission standards. According to a report, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has suggested that the central government levy a significant penalty on auto manufacturers like Kia, Hyundai, Renault, Skoda, Volkswagen, and Nissan for breaking mandated fleet emission standards.
Know the mandated fleet emissions norms
The country’s revised Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations, which went into force in January of this year, are primarily intended to lower vehicle emissions. It is enforced for a brand’s whole fleet. The CAFE target for a certain brand is determined by taking the company’s corporate average kerb weight and factoring in the weight of each specific model and the quantity sold. These figures are used to compute the final, required fleet- or CO2-emission levels or CAFE objective. Penalties may be applied if a certain company’s fleet emission levels exceed the required thresholds.
What is the reason behind these standards?
Even while the Air Quality Index (AQI) has become a recurring threat at the beginning of every Winter season, it has reached alarming levels in numerous cities and towns, including our capital Delhi. Additionally, a significant portion of the responsibility is placed on car emissions every year. According to a report based on sources, these automakers will need to make the quick transition to vehicles that are either powered by greener sources of energy or produce less pollution.
