Projecting impact of powertrain electrification

Light vehicle manufacturers are introducing more hybrid and all-electric models in an effort to help them comply with more stringent Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards going into effect a decade and a half down the road.
Yet the challenge for light vehicle fleets now and in the future will be correctly calculating the fuel saving capability of such technology, in order to offset the higher acquisition cost of for such vehicles, according to Eric Mallia, business development manager for consulting firm FleetCarma.

“Powertrain electrification, including hybrid and ‘grid-enabled’ [plug-in hybrid and all-electric] vehicles, will be manufactured by OEMs to avoid the big penalties associated with not meeting these [CAFÉ] standards – and we’re already starting to see this reality unfold in the marketplace,” he explained to Fleet Owner.
