We’ve been hearing about the dangers of global warming for years. But, now we’re making strides to reduce carbon emissions from trucks, buses, and vans. This three part initiative should reduce carbon pollution by 25 percent by 2027.
Not only will these new standards reduce pollution, but they will also save vehicle owners billions of dollars in fuel costs. By using a few different technologies, trucking companies will think diesel a thing of the past. Most notably, we will see a move toward electric vehicles. The EPA is especially thrilled with these new fuel-efficiency standards. Between 2021 and 2027, there will be new fuel-efficiency standards applied yearly to vehicles with models between 2014 and 2018.
