The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are redesigning the fuel economy label consumers see on the window of every new vehicle in dealer showrooms. The agencies are proposing two different label designs and are asking for input from all Americans on which redesigned label is the most informative to them as they make purchasing decisions. Regardless of whether EPA and DOT select one of the two labels proposed today or adopts a modified version following the public comment process, the goal of the new label will be the same: to provide consumers with simple, straightforward comparisons across all vehicles types, including electric vehicles (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and conventional gasoline and diesel vehicles.
