The last update of global fuel economy trends, published in 2013, concluded that, while global average fuel economy was improving, more needs to be done to meet the ambitious, yet realistic, GFEI target to cut by half the specific fuel consumption of new passenger light-duty vehicles (in Lge/100km) by 2030.

This annual report released by the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) reviews progress on fuel economy policies worldwide, and assesses further work needed to reach GFEI target of a 50% reduction in new car fuel consumption (L/100km) compared to 2005 levels, particularly in non-OECD countries. Says that India, along with Australia and Russia now remain the three largest markets without an official fuel efficiency target.

This update containing new data analysis for years 2010 and 2011 sheds light on the latest improvement of new light-duty vehicle average fuel economy in most of the big markets worldwide including India.

The purpose of this guidance document is to inform national governments in developing and emerging economies about some of the current sources of international funding that are available and that could be used to support national efforts to improve vehicle fuel efficiency.

The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) in partnership with the International Energy Agency (IEA) has released a report authored by George Eads titled "50by50 Prospects and Progress." The report discusses fuel efficiency trends and feasibility of new technologies, and concludes that emissions can be halved in new automobiles by 2030 and in all automobiles by 2050, estimating that gl
