For vehicle suppliers, would a print-out or an electronic format attached to the sales contract be fulfilling the 'before the sale' requirements?

No, unless the customer can see the label 'before the sale', i.e. at the very latest before the sales contract is signed (if on paper) or the button to confirm the purchase is pressed (for on-line sales).
