Volkswagen AG's (VOWG_p.DE) $15.3 billion settlement of allegations that it cheated on diesel engine pollution tests promises a substantial boost for federal and state efforts to expand electric ve

Japanese automaker Nissan said Monday it is taking South Korea to court in response to Seoul’s claims that it manipulated emissions data on a popular sports utility vehicle.

The transport ministry plans to adopt an internationally standardized method of testing car fuel economy, beginning in 2018.

Over the next five to ten years, passenger vehicle manufacturers will be confronted with regulatory pressure and material penalties as gains in fuel economy fall behind the required rates of improvement set to address environmental preservation and climate change mitigation.

This report investigates the development of fuel consumption and other light-duty vehicle (LDV) characteristics (vehicle dimensions, weight, and technical parameters such as fuel type, engine power and displacement) for new vehicle registrations from 2005 to 2013 for more than 20 countries.

The fuel economy of gasoline vehicles will increase to meet 2025 corporate average fuel economy standards(CAFE). However, dedicated compressed natural gas(CNG) and battery electric vehicles (BEV) already exceed future CAFE fuel economy targets because only 15% of non-petroleum energy use is accounted for when determining compliance. This study aims to inform stakeholders about the potential impact of CAFE on life cycle greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, should non-petroleum fuel vehicles displace increasingly fuel efficient petroleum vehicles.

Despite current weakness in global energy markets and the slowdown in China’s growth, demand for energy will continue to grow over the next 20 years and beyond as the world economy expands and more energy is required to power the higher level of activity.

Energy efficiency standards based on product attributes may interact with market conditions and affect the overall stringency of the standards. In this paper analyze the interaction between gasoline prices and the redesigned and tightened federal fuel economy standards.

This study provides an ex-ante assessment of fuel and GHG emission savings potential of low rolling resistance tyres in China’s commercial road freight sector resulting from China’s Green Tyre programme.

The United States will need new legislation to achieve its long-term target of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by more than 80 percent by 2050.
