This brief presents the technical details and benefits of leapfrogging to Euro VI heavy-duty emission standards and Euro 6 light-duty emission standards rather than progressing through Euro 5/V.

In many regions of the world, older, high-emitting vehicles account for a small percentage of the overall vehicle fleet but a disproportionately large share of total emissions. It is estimated that these vehicles may be responsible for more than 50% of particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) emissions by 2020 (Yan et al., 2011).

This inaugural State of Clean Transport Policy report compiles advancements in national and international regulations to reduce energy use, mitigate climate change, and control

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.

The annual European Vehicle Market Statistics Pocketbook offers statistical portrait of passenger car and light commercial vehicle fleets in the European Union from 2001—and, beginning with the 2014 edition, of the heavy-duty fleet as well. The emphasis is on vehicle technologies, fuel consumption, and emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants.

Almost all car and van manufacturers have met European carbon dioxide emission limits several years ahead of their deadlines, according to updated information from the European Environment Agency (EEA).

This paper assesses the status of fuel consumption (FC) levels and fuel efficiency technology adoption in China’s light commercial vehicle (LCV) market in 2010, focusing on the differences among vehicle sub-categories and manufacturers.

The Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions (CAFEE) at West Virginia University (WVU) was contracted by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) to conduct in-use testing of three light-duty diesel vehicles, using a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS), over a variety of pre-defined test routes exhibiting dive

The product planning decisions of a small number of automotive companies have an immense influence on the environmental health of the United States and the world.

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.
