World Energy Council Study Says PEV Sales Must Increase to Bridge Fuel Economy and Emissions Gap

A new study concludes that 16 percent of new light-duty passenger vehicles sold in the U.S., China, and the European Union in 2020 will have to be plug-in electrified vehicles (PEVs) to meet their strict fuel economy standards. The study by the World Energy Council (WEC) concludes selling more fuel-efficient gas engine vehicles won’t be enough to meet emissions-reduction targets in the world’s three largest car markets. Titled “E-Mobility: Closing the Emissions Gap,” and which came out in June, the study found that mandates like California’s zero emission vehicle rules won’t meet this goal. While several countries have strict fuel economy and emissions standards, they haven’t mandated that electric cars be sold to meet them. The study has found a gap between the fuel efficient vehicles predicted to be sold in 2020 in these three major markets with how many PEVs will be nee...
