Average Fuel Consumption plus New Energy Vehicle of Passenger Vehicle Enterprises

On September 11, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology drafted and revised the Parallel Management Measures of Average Fuel Consumption and New Energy Vehicle for Passenger Vehicle Enterprises. The new measures defined clearly relevant terms, calculation, and aims on fuel-consumption decrease. In 2021, 2022 and 2023, the integral proportion of new energy vehicles is 14%, 16% and 18% respectively.

Traditional energy passenger vehicles refer to passenger vehicles that can use gasoline, diesel, gas or ether fuels besides new energy passenger vehicles. Low fuel consumption passenger car refers to the traditional energy passenger car whose comprehensive fuel consumption does not exceed the product of the target value of fuel consumption of the corresponding vehicle type in the Evaluation Method and Indicators for Fuel Consumption of Passenger Vehicles and the average fuel consumption requirement of the enterprise in the accounting year. The actual value of the average fuel consumption of traditional energy passenger cars in enterprises refers to the actual value of the average fuel consumption of enterprises that do not participate in the accounting of new energy vehicles.

Affiliated enterprises cover:

  • Domestic passenger car production enterprises and other domestic passenger car production enterprises whose total direct or indirect ownership is more than 25%.
  • Domestic passenger car manufacturers with direct or indirect ownership of more than 25% by third parties;
  • An imported passenger car supplier authorized by an overseas passenger car manufacturer and a domestic passenger car manufacturer directly or indirectly holding (or being held) more than 25% of the total shares with the overseas passenger car manufacturer.

In 2018, China’s sales of new energy passenger vehicles reached 1.028 million, ranking first in the world for four consecutive years; the average fuel consumption of the industry continued to decline, and the actual value of the average fuel consumption of the industry dropped to 5.80 liters/100 kilometers in 2018, down by more than 10% compared with 2016.
