CCC: New GB-Standard for Limits of Fuel Consumption for Light Duty Commercial Vehicles22. April 2016
The SAC (Standardization Administration of China) has released the new GB standard GB20997-2015 for the limits of fuel consumption for light duty commercial vehicles on December 12, 2015. This standard replaces the old GB20997-2007 and will come into effect on January 1, 2018.
The GB20997-2015 effects light duty commercial vehicles (fueled with gasoline or diesel) with a maximum speed of at least 50km/h or more as well as with a total vehicle mass not exceeding 3500kg. The new standard is based on the regulations of GB/T 19233 which is the national standard for the test methods for fuel consumption of light duty commercial vehicles.
The goal is to also reduce the fuel consumption of light duty commercial vehicles which means to reduce the emissions as well. In many Chinese cities there are limitations and driving restrictions for heavy duty commercial vehicles. Due to this reason, light duty commercial vehicles have a relatively large share of the total traffic volume and therefore contribute significantly to the city`s air pollution.
