On Wednesday, California, along with 22 other states and tử cấm thành bắc kinh the District of Columbia served the Trump administration a new lawsuit. The coalition, which California leads, directly challenges the Trump administration's latest Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient Vehicles (SAFE) rule put into effect this past March.SAFE replaces the Obama administration-era Clean Car Act, which put the US on a trajectory to increase new car fuel economy in big ways through 2026. Specifically, it required 5% fuel economy improvements across an automaker's fleet each year. The Trump administration did away with the regulation and installed SAFE, which calls for 1.5% increases annually, though it originally called for freezing fuel economy figures at 2020 levels.To put the improvements in miles per gallon-speak, the Clean Car Act would have resulted in a corporate-wide average of 54 mpg. The Trump administration standards lower the improvement to 40.4 mpg.
