Executive Panel Discussion: Challenges of Fuel Economy Standards for Heavy-Duty Trucks
Beginning this year, U.S. medium and heavy-duty trucks must comply with a new national fuel economy rule applicable to MY2014-2018. Due to extreme variability in intended use and chassis design, separate emission-certified engines, and other factors, the fuel economy and CO2 certification process for HD vehicles is significantly different from light-duty CAFE and will challenge conventional wisdom in commercial trucking. This panel will highlight a recent National Research Council study on potential approaches and technologies for reducing fuel consumption on large trucks, with response by industry engine and vehicle manufacturer representatives.
