This sets out the impact of current global policies, the changes in the global fleet and new global efficiency targets to accelerate the uptake of clean and efficient vehicles for vehicle efficiency.

While the average fuel economy of vehicles continues to improve, the rate of progress has slowed in recent years.

This report provides an overview of GFEI’s work globally, highlighting how improved vehicle fuel economy is vital for tackling climate change. It was published to coincide with the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco in September 2018.

The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) launched a report on its contribution to help individual countries work towards Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) at the United Nations High Level Political Forum (HLPF), in New York.

Plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) are well equipped to significantly increase the pace towards greater fuel efficiency, according to the latest Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) working paper.

Vehicle size and weight has evolved significantly in the last decades, with vehicle getting larger, taller and substantially heavier. The evidence gathered in this paper shows that the growing share of SUVs is drastically accelerating the size and weight increase trends and threatens the EU CO2 improvement rates.

This report is part 2 of a study of the potential to achieve a particular target of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle sales worldwide by 2030. That target is 100 million for 4 wheel road vehicles (cars and LDVs) as a cumulative sales (or roughly a stock) target in that year, consistent with the Paris Declaration on Electromobility.

While the average fuel economy of vehicles continues to improve, a new analysis by the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) highlights that the rate of progress has slowed in recent years.

This paper explores recent trends in the market penetration of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in selected countries around the world, and the implications of this for a potential transition to a fairly dominant PEV market presence within the next 15 years.

The Global Fuel Economy Initiative has launched a ground-breaking new report which provides a first estimate for the fuel efficiency potential of HDVs in different markets.
