Comments on Midterm Evaluation Draft Technical Assessment Report for Model Year 2022–2025 Light Duty Vehicle GHG Emissions and CAFE Standards

As part of the 2012 rulemaking establishing the model year (MY) 2017-2025 light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) standards, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made a regulatory commitment to conduct a Midterm Evaluation (MTE) of the standards for MY 2022-2025. The first step of this process was the Draft Technical Assessment Report (TAR) issued jointly with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) with opportunity for public comment. This document includes comments related to opportunity costs, specifically how agencies could incorporate opportunity costs into benefit-cost analysis, and the calculation used to arrive at a 10 percent rebound. In addition, comments focusing on California's Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) program discuss treatment of ZEV requirement in assessment of the 2022-2025 standard; fuel prices and effect on costs and benefits of standards; and crediting in the fuel economy and greenhouse gas programs.
