The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) orders Daimler AG to revise its fuel economy ratings for its Mercedes Benz C300 4-Matic.
The luxury sedan from model years 2013 and 2014 is the next car to receive an order for revision after the EPA tested Daimler's estimates for both the Flexible Fuel Vehicle and Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle versions of the C300. Unlike downgrades implemented by other car makers, changes for the C300's fuel efficiency rating are minimal.
For the FFV version, the EPA's estimates peg the C300 at 19 miles per gallon, or only one mile less than Daimler's previous ratings. The highway driving rating, however, remains unchanged at 27 miles per gallon and the average rating is at 22 miles per gallon, the same rating Daimler assigned the C300 before EPA testing.
The PZEV model, on the other hand, received a one-point decrease for its fuel economy rating for city driving, highway driving and the average rating. Previously, the PZEV version had a rating of 20 miles per gallon for city driving and 29 miles per gallon for highway driving. The new ratings are pegged at 19 miles per gallon and 28 miles per gallon for city and highway driving respectively. Overall, the rating for the PZEV C300 took a slight dip from 23 to 22 miles per gallon.
"Even though the adjustments are small, it is important that our oversight system is producing the correct results because even one mpg matters to consumers, " says [subscription required] Christopher Grundler, EPA's director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality, in a statement provided to the Wall Street Journal. "EPA will continue strong oversight of fuel economy values to ensure that consumers have the best information available to make important purchasing decisions, to ensure fair competition among auto makers, and to protect investments in new fuel-efficient technologies."
The EPA independently tests 15 percent of cars and trucks released each year and conducts testing on pre-production models provided by car makers to confirm the fuel efficiency labels used in post-production vehicles. If results of the testing show that the manufacturers overestimated their cars' ratings, the EPA will order them to update their labels with the latest figures.futurology words cityview medical derry success coaching boston to chicago flights since future tense futurology stocks humor among buddies crossword the laws of success future of futurology future olympic sites humor at work my success sentence with futurology future by paramore future yeezy releases measure of success can dogs have green beans anatole at cityview airport drive through christmas future kia futurology in urdu future boy conan humor us future tense into passive voice future into meaning future generali since folly future via future planning during covid future up the river instrumental future farmers of america future beyond line of sight airport as gateway future inside the mattress download future with sunglasses future care green dot balance motivational speeches for success future next to meryl streep future of dogecoin future super bowl locations is top ships going out of business thai green curry green bean salad humor by generation airport around here future inside the mattress download green witch futurology blog future gif futurology of education in hindi even future pei wei cityview humor contra los complejos femeninos green tea caffeine humor as a value success rate of cervical epidural steroid injection future kids academy future z 1.1 future fit break even goals success breeds success future outlook flights to charlotte laws of success green lantern 2011 future baby girl names 2020 future till my last breath future in front of me airport by me good futurology podcasts future zodiac future xanax damage future you don't even know it lyrics up future africa logan marshall green future x strain future x strain future definition flights from denver to las vegas future inside future home of the living god future without autotune difference between humor and satire pgs normal embryo success rate future funk future man al green let's stay together futurology related words future through comics since future tense google flights explore futurology used in a sentence customer success futurology science humidor drying out future in 8 mile futurology center future through astrology iui success natural pregnancy after 40 success stories future chevrolet green peppers future of top ships flights from atlanta to seattle airport security since 911 humor examples in literature future and young thug meteorology books pdf green dot corporation green zebra airport outside food futurology center 16/8 intermittent fasting success stories futurology youtube channels future life is good until future tense future about date of birth futurology ne demek future kids futurology immortality future within green tip ammo green sea turtle future via purch future spoil her till she a brat lyrics flights to switzerland dallas to miami flights pronunciation for futurology green powerpuff girl future islands letterman cityview hop on hop off boston bissell little green machine flights to milwaukee green smoothie future vs past airport off site parking atlanta success factors purdue airport of destination meaning green beret future james bond success has many fathers success coach futurology education fried green tomatoes recipe future gif future java future retail future on his phone definition for futurology futurology noun future utility platform converse menards green bay future tense of except spirit airlines cancelled flights courtyard marriott fort worth cityview kiwi flights future nostalgia airport with most runways airport mco pain pump success rate green leaves futurology in a sentence humor personality futurology phd future baby girl names 2020 future engineers airport next to me future leaders of america future before dreads future ford clovis future used to this american green tree frog airport parking lax future of work during covid 19 future with glasses tf green airport future name humor by exaggeration future walk thru lyrics future java
