International comparison of light-duty vehicle fuel economy and related characteristics

The first ever global analysis of light duty vehicle characteristics, including fuel economy, shows that faster rates of improvement over the next 10-20 years will be needed in order to meet the targets of the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI). The new report "International comparison of light-duty vehicle fuel economy and related characteristics", produced by the IEA in cooperation with the GFEI, presents the ground breaking analysis of light-duty vehicle characteristics, including fuel economy, covering close to 90% of global car sales in 22 major markets and the EU. It was presented at an IEA side event at the COP 17 UN Climate Change Conference in Durban on 1 December.
