AddSwiss engineers working on 80-mpg CNG-diesel-electric hybrid

Automakers have a tough sell reaching fuel economy standards in the US and Europe. Swiss researchers think the solution will have to come from a fusion of the technologies. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have developed a new engine that they say could get the equivalent of 80 miles per gallon. It's a hybrid that gets its power from a diesel engine, natural gas and an electric motor. That combination could achieve fuel economy numbers that are much, much higher

AddJob creation a big part of selling 54.5 MPG fuel economy standard

The White House is taking its time to issue final federal rules for automakers to reach the 54.5 MPG by 2025 fuel economy standard. To fill the open space, many people are having their say in the matter, to influence the outcome. Three Republican Congressmen, for example, would like to see a delay to further consider higher fuel economy rules on "consumer safety." On the positive side, DrivingGrowth and the Consumer Federation of America say that jobs are being created by fuel efficiency and tha

AddNADA: 7 million car buyers to be pushed out of the market by fuel economy rules

If the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration makes its proposed 2025 fuel economy standards official, cars are going to be more expensive, and that's going to shut millions of buyers out, argues the National Automobile Dealers Association.

The proposed standard is aiming for an av

100VW blasts new CAFE standards, alleges bias towards truck makers

Automakers are officially choosing sides on the new proposed Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards, and while nearly every company has come out with statements of support, Volkswagen has chosen to head the camp opposed to the plan.
