There’s a growing number of cars out there that are going to have to get a bit more eco-friendly, or we’ll all have to start paying a bit extra.
The new Ford Fiesta and Toyota Camry are just two of the many cars that are likely to have their emissions levels lowered by 2025.
The US and European Union have also announced plans to make emissions-related costs lower in the near future, although there’s been no confirmation from those countries as yet.
We’ve compiled a list of cars that will likely have their emission levels lowered between 2025 and 2026, with details about the details of the reduction and where it will come from in the coming years.
And for a quick comparison of all the vehicles on our list, we’ve also created an interactive map to help you make sense of how much emissions you’ll need to get your car back in compliance.

This means a car with a CO2 emission rating of around 8,200 g/km (about 0.4 kilograms per kilometre) will need to have an emissions rating of about 9,000 g/kg (about 1.4 kilos per kilo).
The Fiesta will be the first model to get this reduction, and will be joined by the Toyota Camro, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Veloster.
There are also plans to introduce a range of fuel efficiency improvements, with many models seeing the emissions reductions coming as soon as 2025.
In fact, we’re looking at the Ford Fiesta being lowered to an emissions equivalent of just 5.6 kilograms per 100km in 2025, down from 6.4.
Toyota’s Camry, Honda Civic, and Mazda 3 will all see their emissions ratings reduced by about 25 percent by 2025 from the standard Camry.
The Camry’s overall reduction is likely to be around 50 percent, with a range-topping Camry with a rated emissions of 9,100 g/kWh (about 3.2 kilos of CO 2 per 100 kilometers).
The Toyota Camrys range-down from 7,800 to 6,100 grams of C02 per 100kkm will see the fuel economy go up by a further 25 percent to 7.5 l/100km (a figure that could potentially be around 3.6 l/km).
However, there are still other vehicles that will be hit hard by the emission reductions.
The Ford Focus will see its emissions fall by more than 75 percent to about 2.3 kilograms per km.
Meanwhile, the Hyundai Veloce will be down from 4,100 to 3,500 grams of nitrogen oxide per 100 km, and the Mazda 3C will see emissions fall to around 2.2 kilograms perkm.
There’s also a new range of hybrid vehicles from Nissan, BMW, and Tesla that will see their CO2 reductions cut by more like 25 percent or more, from a total of 9.8 kilograms per year (around 6.8 kilos), to 9.4 kg per year.
The Mazda 3 and the Honda Civic are the only other vehicles to be able to go from a CO 2 equivalent of 6.2 l/l (around 1.5 kilos) to a CO two equivalent of around 5.2 kg/l, but these figures may well be conservative.
What do you think about these emissions reductions?
Do you think you’ll be able go back to driving your car with no emission problems in 2025?
Do we need to cut our carbon footprint even more before the world’s economy is back on track?
