Holden in reverse on emissions

The VF Series II Commodore has pushed Holden backwards in the annual rating of vehicle carbon dioxide emissions in Australia. The National Transport Commission report into cars sold here found Holden’s showroom averaged 217g/km in 2015 (up 3g/km from 2014) as its best-selling Commodore upped average emissions by 3g/km to 239g/km. Ford also increased to 210g/km (up 5g/km), yet the Falcon did its bit, dropping from 247g/km in 2014 to 234g/km in 2015; put that down to fewer V8 sales. Despite its hefty SUVs, market leader Toyota dropped 2g/km to 199g/km.
