International Alignment of Fuel Efficiency Standards for Heavy-Duty Vehicles

The United States, Canada, and Japan have all adopted standards that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or may also increase the fuel efficiency of heavy vehicles. These regulatory programs are similar in many ways, and also have some common elements. In addition, the models regulated frequently overlap, and this overlap is likely to increase in the future. However, there are also substantial differences in the programs of the three nations. This report investigates if and how energy standards programs can be coordinated across countries and regions.
