Experimentally investigates the fuel consumption of a best-in-class tractor-trailer in the United States through chassis dynamometer and track testing.

Summarizes the results of a pioneering vehicle testing program aimed at comparing the fuel efficiency of selected tractor-trailers in Europe and the United States.

A regulatory proposal in the European Union would set mandatory CO2 limits for the heavy-duty vehicle (HDV) categories with the highest share of emissions. This breifing summarizes key findings and policy recommendations from recent ICCT research, including technology baseline and cost-effective CO2 reduction potential for long-haul tractor-trailers, the highest-emitting vehicle category.

This case study shows that the actual CO2 reductions of 18.6% achieved in the 2018 Camry exceed the 17.7% reductions predicted by EPA models. This confirms that the OMEGA and LPM models accurately predict both new technology benefits and synergies between technologies. It also suggests that other studies contradicting EPA model outcomes are inaccurate and underpredict future technology benefits.
