Thank you for visiting our website and thus showing interest in the environmental impact of your car.
This site will help you to find and compare the ecoscores of new and old vehicles. The ecoscore allows us to evaluate the environmental performance of a vehicle by taking into account the most important environmental impact factors caused by the vehicle: global warming (mainly through CO2), air pollution (e.g., particulates and nitrogen oxides, impacting both human health and ecosystems) and noise nuisance. An ecoscore between 0 and 100 will be attributed to every vehicle. The closer to 100, the more environmentally friendly the vehicle is. Almost all car categories contain vehicles with an ecoscore of 65 and more. In general, the ecoscore is increased significantly by lowering fuel consumption, installing a particulate filter on diesel cars or retrofitting petrol vehicles with an LPG system.
This website allows you to search the data in several ways. You can search for instance for all cars with an ecoscore of 68, or with an ecoscore between 65 and 75, or with a CO2-emission between 100 and 130 g/km, etc....
