Emissions Cost Estimate

Every km driven by every car represents an additional societal cost of


dollars per km.

It Adds Up

Estimates from indicate that for every km cycled, grams of CO/2 emissions are saved.

Estimate Method

Carbon dioxide is the main cause of human-induced climate change, and transportation is one of the largest sources of air pollution in Canada.

Pollution has a cost on the environment. The carbon pollution price from the Government of Canada is used to estimate that cost in this document.

For every litre of gasoline a car uses, about 2.3 kilograms of carbon dioxide is produced.

Ford’s F-Series trucks were the most sold vehicles in Canada in 2019, and has been Canada’s best-selling light vehicle model for 54 consecutive years. Estimated carbon dioxide emissions will use the manufacturer’s specifications for city-rated fuel consumption.

The city fuel consumption rating for a 2019 Ford F150 XLT Supercrew LWB 4WD is 12.8 L/100km.
