Discussion of CAFE Standards ReviewMar 22 2017
There has been much discussion this year in regards to the potential of the opening of an EPA mid-term review of the Corporate Average Fuel Average (CAFÉ). The topic has become politically charged and daily you can find media reports detailing the potential pros/cons of the review. To shed some light on the impact this has on the future of automotive lightweighting and advanced power storage, Sloboadan Pavlovic, VP of Engineering at ElectriPlast Corp. provides his views below.
"I believe the automotive industry will not change its technology development for political reasons. The OEMs will accept regulatory relief that helps them to be more profitable while developing new vehicle technology rather than implement costly solutions before they are ready. Rolling out electric vehicles and fully hybrid vehicles to help meet the 2022-2025 CAFÉ standards was always a challenge for the auto industry and that is why the industry went with start-stop and mild hybrid vehicles. US automakers compete on a global scale and their product strategy is aligned accordingly, so even if there were a change in CAFÉ standards, we will see little change from the automakers. I’ve been in the auto industry for nearly 30 years and it’s very hard to predict the changing political environment, but one thing that has remained constant is the increasing fuel efficiency requirements, I don’t see that changing,"Slobodan Pavlovic.
Below is a link to a recent article that provides a reasonably unbiased , report on the topic.
