The Kerry-Hollings bill, introduced Feb. 8, calls for a corporate average fuel economy standard of 35 mpg (6.7L/100 km) for cars and light trucks by 2013. The proposed language also sets out a milestone for 2010. By then, when the current system of separate car and light truck standards would expire, fleets must reach the 29 mpg (8.1L/100 km) level. Implementation would begin with the 2006 model year.
