Motion text

That this House notes the consistent criticism that has been levied against car manufacturers for a number of years, whereby new cars are given miles per gallon (mpg) performances almost all of which are more than 20 per cent in excess of genuine real-time car usage, so that a vehicle which is, in strictly controlled tests, capable of 50 mpg is only able to achieve less than 40 mpg by those buying and using the vehicle; and calls on the motor trade industry to implement a realistic driving assessment so that the general car-buying public knows when it sees a mpg figure that it is genuine, realistic and achievable.
