Starting January 1, 2021, all new HDVs sold in Mexico will be required to meet the best-in-class, filter-based standards, equivalent to those currently in place in the rest of North America and the European Union. The Euro VI and US 2010 options are introduced in 2019, along with much weaker Euro V and US 2007 options, which are allowed over a two-year transition period. The soot-free standards become the only regulatory option on January 1, 2021.
Investigated the impacts of updating three standards in Mexico to align with the international best practices employed in the rest of North America: gasoline and diesel sulfur standards, passenger vehicle emissions standards, and truck and bus emissions standards.
Results, methods, and underlying assumptions of an ICCT analysis conducted to support the decision-making process for updating NOM 044, demonstrating the cost-effectiveness of matching EPA 2010 or Euro VI requirements to reduce the environmental impacts of diesel heavy-duty vehicles.
