Partnership for a New Generation Vehicle (PNGV). Although the fuel economy of cars has nearly doubled in the last 25 years, Americans travel more than twice as many miles today as we did in 1970, with a net result of increased fuel consumption and increased greenhouse gas emissions from personal vehicles. While technology has reduced many of the emissions from automobiles, CO2 emissions are the exception.

The PNGV program joins the big three U.S. automakers, Federal agencies and many suppliers of materials and equipment in an effort to develop a more efficient automobile. The program's goal is to triple the fuel efficiency of passenger cars with no decrease in comfort or safety.
