The CAFE 2025 targets are halfway between a Camry hybrid and a Prius Hybrid.
7 key points of the 2025 targets
1. Off-Cycle Credits
(recognition of fuel consumption reducing technologies that are not appropriately accounted for in the current test procedure)
2. Incentives for Electric Vehicles, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles, and Fuel Cell Vehicles
(multiplier of between 1 and 2 for EVs, PHEVs for the 2017-2021), tail pipe emissions only included.
3. Incentives for “Game Changing” Technologies Performance for Full-Size Pickup Truck including Hybridization (mild HEV pickup trucks are eligible for a 10 g/mi. credit during 2017-2021 if the technology is used on a minimum percentage of a company’s full size pickups, beginning with at least 30% of acompany’s full size pickup production in 2017 and ramping up to at least 80% in 2021.
Strong HEV pickup trucks would be eligible for a 20g/mi credit during 2017-2025 if the technology is used on at least 10% of the company’s full size pickups.)
4. Air Conditioning Credits - maximum A/C credit available for cars is 18.8 grams/mile CO2 and for trucks is 24.4 grams/mile
5 Treatment of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), and Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs)
Recognition that, once a consumer has paid several thousand dollars to be able to use a fuel (CNG) that is considerably cheaper than gasoline, it is very likely that the consumer will seek to use the cheaper fuel as much as possible.
6. Credit Banking and Trading
The agencies will propose to continue the 5-year credit carry forward and 3-year credit carry back provisions
