Reducing Vehicle CO2 Emissions

We acknowledge that climate change is real and that we share the responsibility for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in our products. We are committed to making more efficient, lower-impact vehicles and technologies accessible at scale, to make people’s lives better.

How We’re Driving Change

A Smart Approach to CO2 Reduction

We recognize that there’s no single way to improve fuel efficiency and/or vehicle CO2 emissions. That’s why we take a portfolio approach across the three areas of vehicles, fuels and customers:

Smarter Vehicle Choices

Offering affordable, accessible lower-carbon options:

  • Electrified vehicles
  • New engine/transmission technologies
  • Electrical system improvements
  • Aerodynamic improvements
  • Weight reductions
  • Advanced powertrain options

Smarter Fuel Choices

Evaluating, developing and introducing vehicles that use lower-carbon fuels:

  • Electricity
  • Biofuels
  • Compressed natural gas (CNG)
  • Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)

Smarter Driving Choices

  • Giving customers the choice of which vehicles and fuels to purchase and how those vehicles will be driven and maintained
  • Promoting “eco-driving” through training, information and vehicle technology to help customers minimize fuel consumption and emissions

Our Performance

Lower Emissions Across Our Portfolio

Our approach to improving fuel efficiency and cutting vehicle emissions spans new powertrain technology, electrified vehicles and lower-carbon fuels.

40 new electrified vehicles to be launched by 2022

$11 billion investment in electrified vehicle development, some of which was deferred from traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) investment

Our combined fleet fuel economy has improved by 9% compared to 2009
