The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are conducting a joint process to redesign the fuel economy label that is posted on the window sticker of all new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the U.S. These changes are proposed to impact vehicles beginning with model year 2012. The redesigned label will provide information to help American consumers choose more efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles. The changes are needed to respond to the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, introduction of advanced technology vehicles such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles, and changes in how vehicles are purchased by Americans.
