MARKETING AND MOBILITY. REPORT OF A PANEL OF THE INTERAGENCY TASK FORCE ON MOTOR VEHICLE GOALS BEYOND 1980

The report documents an econometric model of automobile and travel demand. This model is designed to estimate the consumer response to changes in automobile price, fuel price, and fuel economy in specific automobile classes (small, mid-size and large) which may be brought about by Federal policies. These policies include automobile excise taxes and rebates based on fuel economy, mandatory fuel economy standard and motor fuel taxes. By combining this behavioral model with a simulation model of automobile manufacturer's behavior, it is possible to estimate the probable impact of these three policies. The marketing and mobility model produces estimates of automobile demand for each of three size classes, sales-weighted new car fuel economy, automobile fleet characteristics, vehicles miles traveled and automobile fuel consumption.
