Full Description:

CAR gathered data and conducted surveys of auto manufacturers to assess the cost and effectiveness of powertrain technologies that may be used to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) and fuel economy standards. This study is intended to offer critical insight and data for all stakeholders; and for consideration as regulators and policymakers deliberate the Midterm Evaluation (MTE). This report aggregates powertrain technology cost and efficiency data from nine global vehicle manufacturers. Survey results indicate differences exist between manufacturers and regulators expectations with regard to many advanced powertrain technologies.
