Outcome of future CAFE standards ‘prejudged at great risk’

Michael Nash examines the possible implications of CAFE standards beyond MY2021

In 2012, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established standards for the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) of passenger cars and light trucks for MY2017-2021. They also provided non-final ‘augural’ standards for MY2022-2025 in the hope of helping OEMs to plan ahead.
