Light Duty Automotive Fuel Economy … Trends thru 1985 850550

ABSTRACT

This, the thirteenth in a series of papers on trends in EPA fuel economy, covers both passenger cars and light trucks and concentrates on the current model year, 1985. It differs from previous papers in two ways:

Model years 1975, 1980 and 1985 are highlighted, with the model years in between these rarely discussed;

The progress of the industry, as a whole, in improving fuel economy since 1975 is emphasized, and individual manufacturer data are de-emphasized.

Conclusions are presented on the trends in fuel economy of the car and light truck fleets; the Domestic, European and Japanese market sectors; and various vehicle classes.
