UK government launches CO2 car-ranking website

The British government has launched a Web site designed to let new car buyers choose the most environmentally friendly vehicle for their needs.

The ''Best on CO2'' website, launched by the UK's Department for Transport on 31 July, aims to direct consumers to the cleanest car model within the vehicle category that they prefer, ranging from the ''super-mini'' and family car categories to executive, 4x4, luxury and performance cars.

Transport Minister Jim Fitzpatrick said: "By choosing the car with the most fuel efficient engine in its class, drivers could reduce their engine CO2 emissions by 24% and potentially save a quarter on fuel costs. So the message is simple - the car you choose can help reduce your impact on the environment, and help save money."
Raising consumers' awareness about the impact their choice of car can have on the environment and on their fuel consumption is seen as a necessity if the EU is to go ahead with plans to reduce average fleet emissions to under 120 grams per kilometre by 2012.
