NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) expressed all its support, after last week, for a single national emissions and fuel economy standard, thus opposing the standard in California, AIAM (Association of International Automobile Manufacturers) did today the same thing.
The AIAM CEO - Michael Stanton stated for the press 'The overriding issue that must be addressed now is how the necessary emission reductions and fuel economy improvements can most efficiently and effectively be achieved'.
'We strongly believe that a single national program to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from, and improve the fuel economy of, motor vehicles is the only sensible approach, with EPA, NHTSA, California and other states and localities playing important complementary roles'.
A brand new meeting in LA taking place today under the EPA guidance (Environmental Protection Agency) and NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), to establish all the guidelines there is, for the all-new CAFE standard.
AIAM said the most important element for the new standard is to make adequate, real lead times, for the ruling.
'Such flexibility is of critical importance for manufacturers that must make the necessary design changes while continuing to meet consumer preferences and market demand. Implementing these comprehensive changes is a difficult undertaking under any circumstances but is particularly difficult in the current economic environment'.
This new CAFE basics proposes a 5% improvement in the economy of fuel, reduction of 950 million metric tons in greenhouse emissions of gas and the preservation of 1.8 billion oil barrels, aimed for light-duty cars unit year 2012 via 2016.
