The EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are revising the fuel economy label that is required on all new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the U.S., according to this press release. There are two primary label designs under consideration.
There are new stickers for Hybrid/Advanced Technology cars; the new designs are much cleaner than the tired ones we are all so familiar with — a welcome upgrade.
The circa 1970s stickers received a modest upgrade in 2008, but the new ones are far more comprehensive. I think these are a big improvement over the old ones. The EPA is taking comments now also: Might not be a bad thing to let them know you like the concept . . .
