Data: Fuel Economy and CO2 Emissions

A. Ford U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy

Miles per gallon

  2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
Cars (domestic and import) 29.1 30.3 31.2 32.6 32.7 35.7
Trucks 22.3 23.6 24.6 24.1 24.2 24.3
Combined car and truck fleet 25.3 26.0 27.1 26.9 27.8 30.0

B. Ford U.S. CO2 Tailpipe Emissions per Vehicle (Combined Car and Truck Fleet Average CO2 Emissions)

Grams per mile

2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
352 340 326 329 318 297

Notes to Data

Improvement is reflected in decreasing grams per mile. This is the first year that the CO2 data has come directly from Ford’s official Greenhouse Gas report. Under the One National Program regulation, 2012 MY is the first year where a separate greenhouse gas compliance report is required, in addition to the annual CAFE report. The CO2 value includes FFV credits, but does not include credits/debits for air conditioning or off-cycle technologies or CH4/N2O compliance.

C. Ford Europe CO2 Tailpipe Emissions per Vehicle

Grams per kilometer

  2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
Ford 149 146 139 128 130 1291
Volvo 190 182 173 NA NA NA

Notes to Data

  1. This is preliminary data; official data from European Commission expected in November 2013.

Improvement is reflected in decreasing grams per kilometer. Based on production data for European markets. European and U.S. fleet CO2 emissions are not directly comparable because they are calculated in different units and because they are assessed based on different drive cycles. In 2009, we switched from reporting European vehicle CO2 emissions as a percent of a 1995 base to reporting actual fleet average CO2 emissions, to parallel our reporting for other regions.
