Enforcement results of the CO2 emission regulations for passenger cars

Since 1 July 2012, CO2 emission regulations for new passenger cars have been in force in Switzerland - analogous to the EU. They oblige Swiss car importers to reduce the emissions of passenger cars registered for the first time in Switzerland. On 1 January 2020, the CO2 target value was tightened from 130 g CO2/km to 95 g CO2/km. This target value must be achieved by the end of 2022. In the course of the change in the measurement procedure for CO2 emissions, the CO2 target value was adjusted from 95 g CO2/km to 118 g CO2/km as of 1 January 2021. Due to this change, some attributes experience a break in the time series (break between the reference years 2020 and 2021). The comparability of subsequent attributes on the time axis is therefore not or only partially guaranteed (co2, co2_massgebend, ziel, ziel_abw, sanktion_final, gsc_beansprucht, gsc_reserve). Exceeding the target is penalised with a sanction levy.

Short report on the enforcement results of the previous year including aggregated key figures. Data basis is approval data (IVZ), supplemented by technical data (type approval database TARGA and data collected by FEDRO itself) and links with data on registered large importers.
