Definition of 'Mass' on 'Monitoring of CO2 emissions from passenger cars'
Would you please kindly explain the detail definition of 'Mass' on the data?
As far as I checked, it looks the mass is based on 'Curb Weight'. Is my understanding correct?
On the other hand, I think the compliance for CO2 regulation is judge by average 'Running Order Weight'.
Because 'Monitoring CO2 emissions from passenger cars and van' shows "Each manufacturer has its individual annual target,calculated on the basis of the 'mass in running order' (12) of the registered cars/vans. The following formulas apply for passenger cars"
Normally, 'Running Order Weight' is about 75kg heavier than 'Curb Weight'.
Therefore, the definition will affect to CO2 target for each manufacturer.
That's why I would like to make it clear.
Thanks in advance.
