MMS = Manufacturer name as in MS registry
T = Type
Va = Variant
Ve = Version
Mk = Make
Cn = Commercial name
Ct = Category of the vehicle type approved
R = Total new registrations
M (kg) = Mass
E (g/km) = Specific CO2 Emissions
W (mm) = Wheel Base
At1 (mm) = Axle width steering axle
At2 (mm) = Axle width other axle
Ft = Fuel type
Fm = Fuel mode
Ec (cm3) = Engine capacity
Z (Wh/km) = Electric energy consumption
IT = Innovative technology or group of innovative technologies
Er (g/km) = Emissions reduction through innovative technologies
TAN = Type approval number

Hope that helps.
