The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on behalf of the Department of Transportation, are each finalizing changes to our comprehensive Heavy-Duty National Program. The Program will further reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and increase fuel efficiency for on-road heavy-duty vehicles, responding to the PresidentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s directive on February 18, 2014, to take coordinated steps toward the production of even cleaner vehicles. NHTSAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fuel consumption standards and EPAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions standards are tailored to each of the three current regulatory categories of heavy-duty vehicles: (1) Combination Tractors; (2) Heavy-duty Pickup Trucks and Vans; and (3) Vocational Vehicles, as well as gasoline and diesel heavy-duty engines. In addition, the agencies are adding new standards for combination trailers. EPAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hydrofluorocarbon emissions standards that currently apply to air conditioning systems in tractors, pickup trucks, and vans, will also be applied to vocational vehicles.
