Average Fuel Economy (AFE)


KEA sets challenging AFE targets taking into account to variety of factors such as the current technology, its policy measures and targets of other advanced countries in order to save energy, to increase consumer benefits and to strengthen competitiveness of Korean automobile industry.


KEA requires vehicle manufacturers and importers to comply with the AFE standards for their cars, so that continuous improvement in vehicle fuel efficiency can be made. (The program has been implemented since January 2006)

Targets of the program

Automobile manufacturers whose number of the passenger cars (excluding LPG cars and light-weight vehicles) sold in the current accounting year exceeds 1,000. This system has been applied to the cars sold by automobile importers since 2010.
