CO2 emissions


CO2 emissions of cars are measured in gram per kilometre. The values vary strongly depending on the type of car. Small compact cars usually cause less emission than vehicles of the luxury and medium class. The average CO2 emission of a vehicle type available in Switzerland was approx. 134 g/km in 2016, which is roughly 1 percent less than in the previous year.
