Jan 17, 2008

Shopping for a new vehicle that saves money on fuel and also helps the environment just got easier. The Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, on behalf of the Honourable Gary Lunn, Minister of Natural Resources, today released the 2008 Fuel Consumption Guide which lists the most fuel-efficient vehicles for 2008. Minister Cannon made the announcement at the Montreal International Auto Show.

“Our Government is ensuring that Canadians have the tools to help them choose a fuel-efficient vehicle that will reduce fuel costs and lower their vehicle’s impact on the environment,” said Minister Cannon.

Consumers can use the 2008 Fuel Consumption Guide to compare the fuel consumption ratings and carbon dioxide emissions of passenger cars and light-duty trucks sold in Canada. The guide is available from most participating new vehicle dealerships, motor vehicle licence agency offices, participating Credit Union offices across Canada, participating Caisses populaires et d’économie Desjardins in Quebec, participating Canadian Automobile Association offices across Canada or on the Web at www.ecoaction.gc.ca/vehicles.
