NADA Statement on NHTSA/EPA Proposal to Revise Fuel Economy/GHG Standards for Light-Duty Vehicles

TYSONS, Va. (Aug. 2, 2018) – In response to a joint proposal by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards for Model Year 2021-2026 cars and light trucks, the National Automobile Dealers Association issued the following statement:

“NADA has long supported a data-driven and informed process for determining future greenhouse gas and fuel economy standards, and is supportive of the extensive work NHTSA and EPA undertook to craft their proposal. We look forward to carefully reviewing the proposal and the regulatory options set out in it. Our collective focus should be on identifying smart standards that maintain vehicle affordability and encourage fleet turnover, as that is the best way to maximize the number of cleaner, safer and more fuel-efficient vehicles we get on the road every year.”
