China has imposed long-debated stringent fuel economy standards,making life tougher for small domestic brands that are already struggling amid a slowdown of the world’s biggest auto market.

The rules,jointly issued by five government bodies would cut passenger cars’ average fuel consumption to 6.9 litres per 100 kilometers by 2015 and down further to 5.0 litres by 2020.

“That’s going to be tough for everyone,especially those small players as they will have to use more fuel-efficient engines and invest in hybrid technologies,” said Yale Zhang,head of Shanghai-based industry consultancy Automotive Foresight.
