  • Major Automakers strike deal with California on mpg standards


    Cars, trucks and SUVs to get nearly 50 miles per gallon on average by 2026

    Four automakers from three continents have struck a deal with California to produce fleets that are more fuel-efficient in coming years, undercutting one of the Trump administration’s most aggressive climate policy rollbacks.

    The compromise between the California Air Resources Board and Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW of North America came after weeks of secret negotiations and could shape future U.S. vehicle production, even as White House officials aim to relax gas-mileage standards for the nation’s cars, pickups and SUVs.
    GM's not listed, but if their competition are meeting these standards the other major manufacturers will have to do the same, or a least come close, to remain competitive. More at the link below.

    Once I get my corvette c8 z51 that accelerates to 60 mph in under 3 seconds, the auto industry, california and the federal government can do whatever they want with this nonsense.

    If auto manufacturers wish to meet california goals of greater fuel efficiency thats wonderful especially since it surpasses federal requirements, nothing wrong with that and should be a good sales tool to have a more efficient vehicle fleet if thats what consumers want.

    Personally living in one of the 13 states that follow the stricter standards I find it annoying that we have two sets of standards. One federal and one for these 13 states...i prefer federal standards as opposed to individual state standards. With the massive shift to electrics by 2022 GM should be all set to have strong sales in those 13 states by fleet averages.

    i wont give my opinion of the Washington post either.

    we are not supposed to soeak of politics on these forums so I hope I havent broken any rules.

      In fact, almost all cars sold today are 50 state certified, so in effect there is one standard: California's.

          I think the donkeys fit better in DC.
