Abstract:
The auto industry today is a global industry that must conform to local emissions and fuel consumption regulation in virtually all markets. These regulations apply different methodologies to different test cycles. This variation in methodologies and test cycles makes direct comparison of standards difficult. This paper compares the NEDC, WLTC and US EPA driving cycles by examining the tractive energy requirements of vehicles from the 2017 US fleet on each of the cycles. In addition, the mass and footprint data from those vehicles are used to compute the CO2 standards for each vehicle under European, US and Chinese standards.
