The 62mpg Car?

Automotive News (subscription required) has a new article out covering the debate about pending CAFE requirements. The powers-that-be are haggling over the next set of national fuel economy requirements, set to take place with model year 2017 and progress through 2025. The environmentalists among the group are pushing for a 6 percent annual increase, which would lead to the AVERAGE new car having to achieve 62 miles per gallon by 2025. Experts predict the only way automakers could achieve such a target would be with a marked increase in the production of plug-in hybrid vehicles, but would consumers buy vehicles that cost, on average, thousands more than comparable ones do today? It’s an interesting debate.
