Washington, The new Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV regulations officially adopted by the Air Resources Board (ARB) will establish the world’s stringent tailpipe and greenhouse gas standards for new passenger vehicles.

new standards can be achieved with the of new clean diesel engines, are 20 to 40 percent more fuel than comparable gasoline and new ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD), which has reduced emissions by 97 percent, according to Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Technology Forum .

“Today’s by the California Air Resources Board finalizing the third-generation Low Emission (LEV III) rules forward an aggressive plan to in a new generation of highly fuel-efficient, petroleum-dependent cars and light in California,” Schaeffer said.

“We can now say with confidence clean diesel cars be part of the LEV III plan, thanks to the progress and innovation in diesel and new advancements in emissions control With the adoption of this the Air Resources Board recognizes the energy efficiency and lower GHG benefits of the new generation of clean technology.”

California’s New Regulations Are the in the World

With LEV III, new light-duty vehicle tailpipe regulations are to be phased in during years 2017-2025. In that all vehicles sold in California have to meet Super Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) standards.

“The ARB played a role in driving the tremendous to very low emissions that the diesel automobile of today,” said. “These new clean will now help in meeting near-term and long-term environmental, and climate goals.

“The fact that technology is both proven and available today is also to making early progress California’s greenhouse gas reduction Some of the other more fuels and vehicle technologies, promising, remain in the very stage of development or at minimal penetration levels.

High Gas and Stricter Emissions Standards Are Diesel Car Sales In U.S.

as Californians are experiencing some of the gasoline prices in the nation, an average of $4.23 a gallon week according to the Energy Administration, the interest in diesel is at its highest level ever,” said. “Last year, diesel car sales in the U.S. 27 percent and sales in 2012 are up than 32 percent this The high fuel prices and emissions regulations are playing a key in the increases sales of clean autos.”

Schaeffer cited several North American examples of the advances in clean diesel and lower emissions:

— At the North American International Show in Detroit, the all new 2012 Passat TDI clean diesel was the winner of the 2012 Earth, Power Car of the Year of the Most Friendly Vehicle ;

— The Volkswagen Touareg TDI Clean was named Canadian Utility of the Year ;

— In 2010 Q7 TDI Clean Diesel was voted the Earth, Wind and Power of the Year and the 2009 Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel was voted the Earth, Wind and Power Car of the ;

— Two of the last four Car of the Year Awards have to clean diesel cars — Audi A3 TDI Clean 2009 — Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel.

Several New Clean Diesel to Be Introduced To U.S. Market

— The Volkswagen which was recently named the Trend 2012 Car of the Year. production of the Passat diesel in its new TN plant in the summer of 2011.

most auto makers clean diesel autos on the in Europe, Asia and Australia, are growing indications that more diesels are on their way to the market,” Schaeffer said.


The Technology Forum is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising about the importance of diesel fuel and technology. Forum are leaders in clean diesel and represent the three key elements of the clean-diesel system: advanced vehicles and equipment, cleaner fuel and emissions-control systems.
