NHTSA Proposes 8% Annual Gains in Fuel Economy
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced regulations this week that will increase the requirements for fuel economy standards to 8 percent per year. This amount was decreased during the Trump administration to just 1.5% per year. This regulation applies to vehicles model years 2024 through 2026.
This proposal follows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations released last week that create more stringent tailpipe emissions standards. Also last week, President Joe Biden announced his intention to make at least 50 percent of new cars sold in 2025 zero-emission vehicles.
