Efficiency mitigates light duty demand growth

Efficiency mitigates light duty demand growth

  • Increasing access to vehicles drives a worldwide increase in personal mobility-related energy demand growth
  • Assuming the current fleet mix and fuel efficiency, there would be a significant increase in energy demand for personal mobility
  • However, major gains in the fuel efficiency of conventional vehicles leads to a major reduction in the energy needed
  • Changes in the fleet mix (e.g., increasing hybrids and electric vehicles) play a much smaller role in limiting energy demand for light-duty vehicles
