The bottom line is that manufacturers as a whole have met the standards with a bit of room to spare. Manufacturers’ individual performance varied widely. The reasons for that variation provide insights into this groundbreaking greenhouse gas reduction program – directly tied to federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE ) standards – that will be unfolding from now through 2025. Several manufacturers, including Ford and the large Asian automakers, met the car standard strictly on the basis of their average tailpipe emissions, without applying the multiple flexibilities built into the program.
