GFEI partner the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) has undertaken new analysis on the light commercial fleet in India. This includes both mini trucks and pickup trucks which are used as “last-mile” connectivity to move goods to their final destination. While India has a fuel economy standard for passenger cars (based on CO2 emissions), these do not currently apply to Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs). The paper creates a baseline of fuel consumption to help regulators develop an effective CO2 standard.

Fuel economy targets in India: Manufacturers making progress, but could standards be tighter?

A new paper by GFEI partner ICCT examines the fuel economy of India’s vehicle fleet, assessing the fuel consumption by manufacturer against current standards and evaluating their readiness to meet tighter requirements that will come into place in 2022-23. It shows that automakers are making great strides towards meeting these new fuel economy standards, although the Indian targets allow higher levels of emissions than the EU 2021 standards.
