Special Report: Fuel Economy Phase 2

June 8, 2016
The trucking industry is facing a new round of government requirements in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The joint announcement by EPA and NHTSA last year of proposed new greenhouse gas emissions regulations (GHG Phase 2) for heavy-duty trucks has brought about plenty of conjecture within the industry about what the rule will say when it’s finalized this summer and how truck makers and fleets will comply.

These goals are expected to include an approximately 24% fuel efficiency gain for tractors, 8% to 12% for trailers, and 4% for engines.

This special report from the editorial staff of Fleet Owner details what will likely be in the final rule, how truck makers might be able to achieve those results, and what impact this will have on fleets.
