Vehicle manufacturers need to comply with the gas mileage, or fuel economy standards set up by the EPA and NHTSA. The objective of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) is to reduce energy consumption by increasing the fuel economy of cars and light trucks. NHTSA has recently set standards to increase CAFE levels rapidly over the next several years.
In this session, David F. Merrion will outline the EPA and NHTSA standards of fuel economy. The 2025 fuel economy standards are 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg) and a corresponding GHG standard. The types of vehicles that will be offered will vary by manufacturer such as gasoline engines, diesel engines, hybrids (conventional & plug in), battery electric, fuel cell etc. The fuel economy standards are corporate average fuel economy (CAFE). Sales volume of these different types of vehicles is important for compliance.
