In Volume II, the light-duty vehicles (LDVs--under 6,000 lb GVW) and medium-duty vehicles (MDVs) selected to form the basis of cost factor comparisons are characterized and delineated. The specific emission control systems used in LDV and MDV cost calculations, the characteristics or baseline emission levels prior to incorporation of emission control systems, and the lifetime costs attributable to emission control. A comparison and discussion of LDV and MDV cost factors (expressed as dollars expended per ton of pollutant removed) as a function of emission control system type and as a function of percent reduction in emission rate are summarized. The heavy-duty vehicle (HDV--over 14,000-lb GVW) cases examined are summarized. A summary overview of emission control cost factors associated with power plants and other stationary sources is given. A review of numerous transportation planning studies for selected air quality control regions (AQCRs), with emphasis on vehicle class distribution (LDV, MDV, and HDV) and annual mileage contributions is presented. Emission inventories are included for LDVs MDVs, and HDVs for the New York City, Los Angeles, and Phoenix/Tucson AQCRs.
