Specifically, the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has created the categories B.And c.And sound echo And zerowhich has remained unchanged over the past seven years. during this time, The system has received various criticisms To allow really polluting compounds to pass through for the environment with some small “tweaks”. As with electric starter motors manufacturers put them in some ranges so they can sell them as non-plug-in hybrids and thus earn the ECO label.
Types of environmental labels applicable in the DGT
Label B (yellow): Passenger cars and light petrol vehicles registered since January 1, 2001 and diesel since 2006.

potential change in the future
During this period, given the above criticisms, there was a divergence Rumors of changes in the rating system from DGT. However, it seems that these never arrived, as a change in this sense would have caused this to happen A revolution in the automotive sector.
When that change happens, if it does happen, it must be the result of a deeply thought out decision and It is applied gradually To avoid a shock to the industry. next to, It may not be retroactiveor would assume serious damage to manufacturers and drivers.
While it is being decided whether and how the environmental labeling system will be modified, what the DGT has done is Expand the number of labels with another oneabout which very little is currently known.
Technically known as Designation V-26it is a designation that in this case does not correspond to a new environmental category, but refers to New classification the cars.
In this case works to determine the type of cars car sharing or to cars subscriberalso known as cars rent Without a driver or cars for hours. The label is also used for Shared motorcycles.
