Description:

The automobile industry committed itself to a 25% reduction in fuel consumption by new cars built and sold in Germany between 1990 and 2005. This means that the desirable average consumption level is 5.97 litres per 100 km. The achievement of this agreement is conditional on measures undertaken by the federal government such as improving traffic flows, tax breaks, introduction of an emission-based motor tax system and government support of alternative fuels and vehicles. This commitment from the car industry will be increased to 33%.
