Supplementary notes
The term 'ultra-low emission vehicles' is used to refer to vehicles with significantly lower levels of tailpipe emissions than conventional vehicles. In practice, the term currently refers to electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.  For the purposes of this indicator, vehicles with fully electric powertrains, and cars with tail-pipe emissions below 75 g/kmg/km of CO2 have been included at this stage.
