This paper assesses the status of fuel consumption (FC) levels and fuel efficiency technology adoption in China’s light commercial vehicle (LCV) market in 2010, focusing on the differences among vehicle sub-categories and manufacturers. It also compares fleet features and technologies between similar vehicles from the United States, Europe, and China for model year 2010. The results provide insights that can be used to help develop the next phase of LCV (2015 and beyond) fuel consumption regulation in China.
