Comparison of the Fuel-Efficiency Technology Deployment in Passenger Cars in China, Europe and the United States

To foster oil independence and mitigate climate change, China, the United States, and the European Union have enacted regulations to reduce the fuel consumption (FC) of light-duty vehicles, such as FC standards and tax incentives. Fuel consumption standards are an effective approach that have been adopted by all three regions. These standards have become increasingly stringent during the past few years, driving manufacturers to adopt advanced technology to reduce fuel consumption. This briefing provides insights into the trends of technology deployment in response to the latest standards in China, the U.S. and the EU from 2010 to 2014. Specifically, this briefing compares the fleet characteristics and vehicle technology deployment in China, Europe and the U.S. from 2010 to 2014. In addition, the briefing evaluates the response of the passenger vehicle market in China to the country’s 2014 standard and lays the foundations for future technology development and cost assessments to establish 2025 to 2030 fuel consumption standards.
