Explores some of the compliance pathways available to heavy duty vehicle manufacturers. Specifically, this paper develops hypothetical technology packages for certain types of tractor trucks, vocational vehicles, and trailers using distinct technology strategies compares cost-effectiveness.

Summarizes the key elements of the proposed regulation to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from new on-road heavy-duty vehicles, including the major vehicle and equipment categories, estimated costs and benefits, and Canada-specific provisions.

Summarizes the final rulemaking on new Phase 2 standards to reduce HDV fuel consumption and GHG emissions. Together with Phase 1, the increased efficiency of HD trucks and buses will cut fuel use by over one-third by 2050.
