MPG Report Sets Stage for Debate

It has officially begun: The process that will shape the powertrains and fuel efficiency of U.S. autos through 2025 kicked off last week with the release of an exhaustive technical study by U.S. and California environmental regulators. With the launch of the legally required midterm evaluation, environmentalists, regulators and the industry began battling over whether to keep the standards the same and accept a lower fleet average or to adjust them to reflect market and technology changes since the rules were written.

Forecast: July Sales to Return to 17 Million SAAR Trend

A WardsAuto forecast calls for U.S. light-vehicle sales to reach a 17.6 million-unit seasonally adjusted annual rate in July, following June’s 16.6 million SAAR. July’s SAAR would be significantly higher than the 17.1 million recorded year-to-date through June, and would help bring 2016 sales in line with WardsAuto’s full-year forecast of 17.3 million units.

Brexit Auto Impact Taking Shape; Full Effect Years Out

Detroit auto stocks have recovered on Wall Street a month after the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union sent the global financial market into a tailspin. But in other ways, Detroit automakers are just beginning to feel the impact of the referendum that will take years to complete.

Water Out of the Tailpipe: A New Class of Electric Car Gains Traction

Steve Manning, a financial consultant in Southern California, liked the idea of driving a car that would go easy on the environment. But last November, as he eyed a $58,000 Toyota Mirai at the dealership near his home in Santa Ana, he had to think more than twice. This was not just any electric car. Its electricity comes from fuel cells powered by hydrogen, which means the only tailpipe emissions are water vapor.
