Australia is moving towards implementing a ban on high-polluting vehicles.

The Australian government is set to ban the sale of certain high-polluting vehicles and reduce fuel additives as part of new regulations on fuel and emissions standards. These measures, effective from December 2025, compel automakers to ensure that new vehicles adhere to Euro 6d noxious emissions standards, aiming to cut down on pollution. The implementation of Euro 6d rules, already in place in major car markets worldwide, will also lead to modifications in a specific type of petrol sold in Australia to accommodate the new generation of vehicles. While climate advocates appreciate the move, they stress the need for fuel-efficiency standards to encourage the importation of low-emission and electric vehicles. According to government data, transport emissions, primarily from cars and light commercial vehicles, constituted 21% of Australia’s total emissions in 2023.
