REPORT BY THE FEDERAL TASK FORCE ON MOTOR VEHICLE GOALS BEYOND 1980. VOLUME II. TASK FORCE REPORT

In view of the Nation's long-range need to conserve energy and the fact that the motor vehicle fleet is the largest single user of our decreasing petroleum supplies, the Energy Resources Council (ERC) established a Federal task force to study motor vehicle fuel economy goals beyond 1980. These goals were to be compatible with environmental, safety, and economic objectives. The task force consisted of representatives from DOT, EPA, ERDA, FEA, and NSF. This task force report is composed of seventeen chapters: motor vehicle goals beyond 1980; key considerations underlying the study; the automobile after 1980; approach used in the study; auto design; motor vehicle manufacturing and maintenance; marketing and mobility; petroleum consumption; safety; air quality and health; material requirements and availability; petroleum resource availability and petroleum industry analysis; consumer costs; motor vehicle manufacturing and maintenance industries; national economic impacts; research and development requirements; and Federal policy implications.
