Go60mpg is a joint effort of the Union of Concerned Scientists, the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Environment America. We know that American ingenuity and technology can make all-new cars and trucks cleaner and more fuel-efficient. It’s one of the biggest steps we can take towards saving money at the gas pump, cleaning up our air, and ending America’s oil dependence.
That’s why we’re rallying public support to raise fuel efficiency standards for new cars to at least 60 miles per gallon and no more than 143 grams per mile of carbon pollution by 2025. We also want to see improvements in America’s big rigs and other work trucks.
Right now, we have a historic opportunity to make this happen. Last May, the Obama administration announced plans to update fuel efficiency and carbon pollution standards for both cars and trucks. GO60 mpg is working to ensure that America gets strong new standards that save consumers money, cut pollution, and reduce our dependence on oil.
