The CBC reports:
In January, Ottawa announced plans to create new fuel economy standards for cars and light trucks. The new standards aim to match U.S. standards of at 6.7 L per 100 km for 2011 model year vehicles.
With my current car, I’ve seen fuel consumption as poor as 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres only once. If you want this kind of economy, you don’t have to wait three years.
The story focuses on a $90 million three year program to offer rebates and transit passes in an attempt to get old gas guzzlers off the road. Unfortunately, the story offers no further details. I was eager to read what they have in mind to replace the cancelled program that gave me a rebate when I bought my car.
