The overall aim of the Green Vehicle Index project is to orient the consumer towards the most energy efficient low polluting vehicle by providing understandable information and to spark competition among manufacturers to produce real clean and energy efficient vehicles.
The GVI results will empower the consumer and strengthen the demand side. This will be achieved by informing the consumers through the involved (inter)national consumer organisation and the strong link to Euro NCAP.
The GVI consortium represents a unique mix of mobility clubs, leading testing and certification services suppliers in the automotive field, and expertise and knowledge centres that measure, analyse and model vehicle and transport emissions.
The GVI Project is built around four necessary steps: to understand consumer priorities, to develop new and robust test procedures, to upgrade the rating system and to reach 180 millions consumer with the right communication.
