If my vehicle is new, am I requested to consider its conformity with the requirements of energy efficiency for vehicles? New vehicles should meet the requirements of energy efficiency for new vehicles according to the concept of Corporate Average Fuel Economy. The standard applies to the automotive manufacturer, not to commercial or individual importer. As any vehicles can be imported, and the automotive manufacturers will be held accountable based on their total sales for the year.
I want to import a 2016 model year vehicle with an engine displacement of 3.8 Liter, taking into consideration that the declared fuel economy according to the Fuel Economy Label is 8.5 km/liter. Does the decision apply to new or used vehicles? The vehicle you have indicated is considered new; therefore, the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) applies to it. The minimum limit of fuel economy for used vehicles does not apply to it.
How true is this information: I can import a 2012 model year vehicle which has traveled for a distance of more than 1000 km? Yes, you can. However, the vehicle should conform to the requirements of energy efficiency for used vehicles, which can be found at the following link: www.sls.gov.sa
