Article excerpt

Standing Committee to Review the Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles; National Research Council, Washington, DC; 2001; Available while supply lasts from NRC Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W., HA-270, Washington, DC 20418

The Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV) was a cooperative R&D program between the federal government and the United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR), whose members were DaimlerChrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation. The program addressed improvements in national competitiveness in manufacturing and in the implementation of energy-saving innovations in passenger vehicles. In addition, it sought to develop a new generation of vehicles by setting a stretch goal to achieve fuel economy up to three times (80 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent) that of comparable 1994 family sedans without sacrificing size or utility or increasing the cost of ownership. The purpose of this program was to conceive, develop and implement new technologies capable of significantly reducing the petroleum consumption and carbon dioxide emissions of the U.S. automobile fleet.

The report contains the committee's assessment of the overall balance and adequacy of the PNGV research program to meet its technical goals and the program's efforts to develop commercially feasible low-emission propulsion systems. …
