What is the EnerGuide label for vehicles?
(NC)—EnerGuide is the official federal government mark for rating and labelling the energy consumption or energy efficiency of products, such as new vehicles, appliances, heating and cooling equipment and houses that have had an energy efficiency evaluation.
The fuel consumption ratings that appear on the EnerGuide label are provided by vehicle manufacturers and are based on standardized testing procedures performed under controlled conditions.
The federal government will be introducing new redesigned EnerGuide fuel consumption labels for all new vehicles sold in Canada. The new labels will align with the labels used in the United States and provide more comprehensive information to help consumers choose more fuel-efficient vehicles. It is anticipated that the new labels will be introduced by 2015.
