The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a joint notice of intent to propose new fuel economy standards for light-duty vehicles for model years 2017 to 2025.
A supplemental notice with more information is expected by the end of November with an actual proposed rule issued within a year and a final rule by July 2012. The high range of standards currently being considered could ultimately require cars and light trucks to reach more than 60 mpg.
The NTEA expects a proposed rule on medium- and heavy-duty truck fuel efficiency regulations to be issued by NHTSA and EPA in the near future.
