This briefing compares the fleet characteristics and fuel-efficiency 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 fuel efficiency standards.

India has a substantial opportunity to improve HDV fuel efficiency levels. Per-vehicle fuel consumption reductions between roughly 20% and 35% are possible with technologies that are expected to be available in India over the next 10 years.

Analyzes the Canadian vehicle manufacturing market and sales patterns to illuminate the possible impacts if Canada weakens its greenhouse gas emission standards in order to align with the U.S. federal government or maintains its existing standards and aligns with California and, most likely, 13 other U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
