WARRENVILLE, ILL. – (August 9, 2011) – Following is a statement from Daniel C. Ustian, Navistar chairman, president and chief executive officer, about the recent announcement of final Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and fuel efficiency regulations for commercial vehicles:
“Navistar commends the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for developing one single, national standard for GHG and fuel efficiency for medium- and heavy-duty engines and trucks. We were pleased to be part of the process providing the agencies with information on the positive impact of total vehicle technology integration on fuel efficiency and GHG emissions.”
