South Korea - Fuel Economy & CO2 emissions

Status

Back To Top

Manufacturers and importers of passenger cars in South Korea have the option of meeting either corporate average fuel economy targets or corporate average greenhouse gas emissions targets. Fuel economy standards are the responsibility of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE), the former Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) which was renamed in 2013. Greenhouse gas standards are managed by the Ministry of Environment (MoE). Corporate average fuel economy standards for passenger cars were phased in until 2015 when they became effective for 100% of the domestic production and imported vehicles (special limits apply for low volume manufacturers and importers).  New targets have been established for 2020, which are being phased in from 2016.
