U.S. 2025 auto fuel-economy target gets support from suppliers?
The U.S. should maintain President Barack Obama’s 2025 automotive fuel-economy target because the goal spurs innovation and job growth. By setting a long-term target similar to those of the European Union, Japan and China, Obama is providing the auto industry with a stable market big enough to support sustained innovation.
Obama wants average U.S. auto fuel economy to rise from 35.5 miles per gallon this year to a projected 50.8 mpg in 2025. His successor will make a preliminary decision next year on whether to stick with that goal. A recent technical assessment report by the Environmental Protection Agency and other departments concluded that automakers can meet the target mainly with existing technologies such as turbochargers.
