The Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has been considering the possibility of leapfrogging from Bharat Stage (BS) IV emission standards in April 2017 to BS VI emission standards in April 2020. The Parliamentary Committee on Petroleum and Natural Gas has endorsed the idea.

Inspection and maintenance (I/M) programs are key to identifying high-emitting vehicles and mitigating their impact on air quality and climate. This paper assesses best practices for I/M programs targeting heavy-duty vehicles and makes recommendations on how to improve HDV I/M programs in the future.

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).

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
