iCET releases EFV Online Rating System to provide consumers the environmental impact information of vehicles to guide green consumption. Its methodology
is based on life cycle environmental impacts from the vehicle’s use,
the fuel cycle (production and distribution), and from vehicle
manufacturing. EFV rating system gave a green score for every passenger
vehicles sold in Chinese market. At the same time, online system
provides greenhouse gas emission calculation. Consumers could choose
their favorite vehicle to calculate the greenhouse gas emission based on
their own driving habits. The goal of the EFV rating system is to
provide manufacturers, policy-makers, and consumers with an accurate and
scientific method for differentiating vehicles by their total
environmental impact. The website currently includes data for 88 car
brands and will continue to grow as new cars enter the Chinese market.
