The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are issuing a joint final rulemaking to establish new standards for light-duty highway vehicles that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and improve fuel economy. The joint rulemaking is consistent with the National Fuel Efficiency Policy announced by President Obama on May 19, 2009, responding to the country's critical need to address global climate change and to reduce oil consumption. EPA is finalizing greenhouse gas emissions standards under the Clean Air Act, and NHTSA is finalizing Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended. These standards apply to passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and medium-duty passenger vehicles, covering model years (MY) 2012 through 2016. The standards will require these vehicles to meet an estimated combined average emissions level of 250 grams of CO2 per mile in MY 2016 under EPA's GHG program, and 34.1 mpg in MY 2016 under NHTSA's CAFE program and represent a harmonized and consistent national program. These standards are designed such that compliance can be achieved with a single national vehicle fleet whose emissions and fuel economy performance improves year over year.
