Summarizes the key elements of the proposed regulation to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from new on-road heavy-duty vehicles, including the major vehicle and equipment categories, estimated costs and benefits, and Canada-specific provisions.

Evaluates the costs and benefits of extending Mexico’s program to 2025 by fully aligning with U.S. standards to support the adoption of a strong regulatory package.

Estimates health benefits and technology upgrade costs of the proposed standard and implementation timetable focusing mainly on nationwide impacts, but also separately analyzes China’s three key regions: the so-called Jing-Jin-Ji region, the Yangtze River delta region, and Guangdong province.
