The Saudi Energy Efficiency Program in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia achieved tangible success in improving the fuel efficiency of imported new cars by (3%) in 2016 AD compared to 2015 AD, and in improving fuel consumption by (8%) for used cars imported for the same period.

This success is due to a number of measures approved by the program during the past few years, including:

First: Complying with the “Fuel Economy Card” for new light cars in 2014, and establishing an easy online portal for car manufacturers and importers to obtain the card.

Second: The issuance of the fuel economy standard for new and used light cars in 2014 AD, which began to be implemented at the beginning of 2016 AD.

The program also signed memorandums of understanding to implement the fuel economy standard with more than 80 vehicle manufacturers, representing more than 99% of vehicle sales in the Kingdom.

Efforts to improve energy efficiency in the transportation sector are expected to result in an increase in the fuel economy of new light cars by (23%) in 2020 AD, and by (55%) in 2025 AD.

It is noteworthy that the transport sector in the Kingdom ranks third as one of the largest energy-consuming sectors, as official statistics indicate that it alone consumes (23%) of all domestic energy consumption, and most of that consumption is due to land transport (light and heavy vehicles).
