Obama Administration Finalizes Historic Clean Car Standards

Hartford, CT—Today the Obama administration finalized new clean car standards that will double the fuel efficiency of today’s vehicles by 2025, drastically reducing emissions of carbon pollution and cutting oil use in Connecticut and nationwide.  The standards will cover new cars and light trucks in model years 2017-2025, and require those vehicles to meet the equivalent of a 54.5 miles-per-gallon standard by 2025.  A recent joint analysis by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Union of Concerned Scientists projects that by 2030 in Connecticut alone, the standards will cut carbon pollution from vehicles by nearly 2.8 million metric tons—the equivalent of the annual pollution of roughly 424,000 of today’s vehicles—and save more than 235 million gallons of fuel.
