      Current CAFE regulations, modified by the Obama administration in , require continuous improvements in fuel economy through to reach an average fleet fuel economy of miles per gallon. They are indexed based on vehicle footprints so that larger vehicles, such as sport utility vehicles and light trucks, are not subject to the same. Fuel-economy standards should be administered upstream to capture percent of the market for new vehicles, requiring each vehicle manufacturer to meet a fleet average fuel-economy standard for all new vehicles sold during a year. Fuel-economy standards can also be designed to provide flexibility and reward performance by allowing credit.

    Sustainable long-term environmental benefits at a cost-effective price is a major driver for the automotive steel market. North America CAFÉ (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) emission standards have made it mandatory to improve the average /5(14). On May 2, , the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking entitled Average Fuel Economy Standards, Passenger Cars and Light Trucks; Model Years –, 73 Fed. Reg.

    And fuel economy mandates in the past have forced the industry to shrink car sizes, making them less safe. Even so, it's a huge blow to one of Obama's much heralded policy victories.

Information on fuel economy labeling, history and trends of fuel economy, testing and data, and information on how federal agencies work together on the issue of fuel economy.

The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards are regulations in the United States, first enacted by the United States Congress inafter the –74 Arab Oil Embargo, to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) produced for sale in the United are set by the Secretary of Transportation.

In more recent studies, the average fuel economy for new passenger car in the United States improved from 17 mpg ( L/ km) in to more than 22 mpg ( L/ km) in The average fuel economy for new model year cars, light trucks and SUVs in the United States was mpg US ( L/ km).L/ km → km/20 L:L, /,k, m, =, 1, k, m, /, 20, L, {\displaystyle {\frac {}{\rm {L/\;km}}}={\rm {1\;km/20\;L}}}.

The Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule would amend existing Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) and tailpipe carbon dioxide emissions standards for passenger cars and light trucks and establish new standards covering Automotive average fuel economy standards book years through The proposal would retain the model year standards for both programs.

Automotive Fuel Economy: Congress set a requirement that the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) of the new-car fleet of each manufacturer achieve miles per gallon (mpg) in model year and thereafter.

Although its charge did not require the committee to analyze the current structure and form of fuel economy standards or to. This proposed decision responds to a petition filed by Mosler Automotive (Mosler) requesting that it be exempted from the generally applicable corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standard of miles per gallon (mpg) for model yearsandand that, for Mosler, lower alternative standards be established.

Automotive Fuel Economy Survey Report The Consumer Reports Survey Team conducted a nationally representative survey in June to assess American adults’ attitudes and viewpoints on vehicle fuel economy. August The American public overwhelmingly supports the goal of national fuel efficiency Size: 1MB.

Because new light- duty trucks sold are required to meet a fleet average fuel economy standard of mpg compared with the mpg standard that currently applies to the passenger car fleet, this shift has been pulling down the overall fuel economy of the light vehicle fleet.

HISTORY OF FUEL ECONOMY One Decade of Innovation, Two Decades of Inaction s n In response to the oil price shocks of the early s, Congress passed the nation’s first Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards in The law called for a doubling of passenger-vehicle efficiency—to miles per gallon (mpg)—within 10 years.

Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE), standards designed to improve the fuel economy of cars, light trucks, and sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) sold in the United d by the U.S.

Congress in as part of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, the CAFE standards were a response to an energy crisis in the United States and were initially part of an effort to reduce. Average Fuel Economy Standards, Passenger Cars and Light Trucks, Model Year NHTSA estimates that the MY standards will raise the industry-wide combined average to mpg, save million gallons of fuel over the lifetime of the MY cars and light trucks, and reduce CO2 emissions by million metric tons during that period.

The Trump administration’s proposal argues that forcing automakers to increase the fuel economy of their fleets to reach an average. Evidence continues to mount that strict fuel economy standards are making cars and trucks more expensive than they would be otherwise.

Up throughnew vehicle prices—adjusted for quality. The fuel consumption standard is inversely equivalent to the fuel economy standard. Instead of increasing fuel economy, light-duty vehicles must decrease the gallons consumed per mile.

Combination or option. The United States and Mexico have both fuel economy and GHG standards, and manufacturers must satisfy both. Ap - Automakers are pushing for the U.S. to embrace higher-octane gasoline to help meet the increasingly stringent federal fuel economy and carbon-emissions standards by the deadline.

The CAFE standards were born, working much as they do today, with fuel economy increasing a little bit every year. Bynew cars averaged mpg. Bynew cars averaged mpg. Steven Thorpe, “Fuel Economy Standards, New Vehicle Sales, and Average Fuel Efficiency,” Journal of Regulatory Economics, Vol.

11, No. 3 (May ), pp. – Energy Independence and. Established inthe Top Runner program sets fuel economy standards indexed to manufacturer average curb weight.

The targets represent a % reduction in fuel consumption compared to The program includes tax breaks for early compliance that have resulted in manufacturers meeting previous fuel economy targets well ahead of schedule.

Manufacturers each have to meet the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for their sales-weighted fleet. Car standards started at 18 miles per gallon (mpg) inwent to mpg inbut were reduced to 26 mpg by the U.S.

Department of. InNHTSA established final passenger car and light truck CAFE standards for model yearswhich the agency projects will require in model yearon average, a combined fleet-wide fuel economy of mpg.

As part of the same rulemaking action, EPA issued GHG standards, which are harmonized with NHTSA’s fuel economy.
