Twenty-One AGs Filed Comments on NHTSA’s Proposed Updates to CAFE Standards for MY 2027-2032 Light-Duty Vehicles

California Attorney General Rob Bonta led a coalition of 21 attorneys general, along with four local governments, in submitting comments supporting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) proposal to strengthen its corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards for light-duty vehicles for model years 2027-2032. The AGs supported the strengthened standards, which would extend the average miles per gallon of light-duty vehicles such as passenger vehicles and light trucks by 2032. The AGs also urged NHTSA to consider whether even more stringent standards are possible, calling on the agency to better take into account energy conservation needs and technological advancements that could lead to more fuel efficient vehicles.
