Leading up to the Labor Day weekend as thousands of people will take to the road, the EPA and U.S. Department of Transportation announced proposed changes to new vehicle fuel economy stickers. Car dealer showrooms have displayed the same stickers with basic highway and city MPG information for the past three decades.
New information will be provided to help consumers in their shopping experience. The proposed sticker to the left even grades the car on its fuel efficiency level favoring the electric and hybrid models.
What we noticed immediately was the inclusion of QR Codes on both versions of the sticker. Smartphone users will gain quick access to compare models, for instance. This is yet more proof of the rapidly growing use in QR Code adaptation.
Both agencies will be accepting public comments regarding the stickers before one will be chosen. To learn more, you can read about them here.
