Provincial Government Launches Calculator to Support Vehicle Efficiency

The Provincial Government today launched the Vehicle Efficiency and Cost Calculator to inform motor vehicle users in Newfoundland and Labrador about the cost and benefits of choosing a fuel efficient vehicle.

The calculator helps residents compare the user costs and the impacts on the environment of various types of gasoline, diesel, hybrid and electric vehicles.

The Vehicle Efficiency and Cost Calculator is available on Turn Back the Tide, the Provincial Government’s public awareness website on climate change: external link icon.

“Our government is committed to providing tools to residents so that they can make greener choices when purchasing a vehicle. Energy efficiency and clean energy play an important role in helping with the evolving issue of climate change, and this Vehicle Efficiency and Cost Calculator will help people make informed decisions and reduce their carbon footprint on the environment.”
