However, consumers value other attributes more highly, such as performance, safety, utility, and luxury. Putting in technologies just to improve fuel economy may not be valued by customers. Fuel Economy Improvement - ??? Depends on how much is already incorporated into fleet and synergies (or lack of synergy) between technologies Worldwide Fuel Control:  Worldwide Fuel Control On a systems basis, good fuel is needed to enable many technologies Growing countries, such as India and China, need to improve fuel quality Sulfur Heavy metals Aromatics Deposit additives etc Diesels:  Diesels Slide18:  Comparison Between U.S. & Europe Source: US Department of Energy Report, October 2003; Association of European Automobile Manufacturers, April 2003 Note: All data valid through December 2002 Correlation with fuel price: R2=0.61 Diesel emission standards less stringent than gasoline in Europe Diesel Market Potential in US:  Diesels good for towing and highway efficiency But hybrids get better fuel economy in city driving Diesels are currently cheaper than hybrids, but are not cheap $1500 for 4-cyl., $2000-$3000 for V-8 Tier 2 emission standards will add significant cost Less convenient service stations (only ~ 20% carry diesel) Will take time for public to recognize improvements in noise, vibration, smell, starting, and emissions Plus pickup customers want a “tough” diesel, not a wimpy quiet one Must compete with improved gasoline engines and hybrids Europe refineries already shipping unwanted gasoline to US With continued fleet turnover to diesel in Europe, who will buy gasoline if US also shifts to diesels?
