  2. Includes FFV credits. Does not include A/C or Off-Cycle credits. The decline in combined car and truck fuel economy of 1% YOY is primarily due to customers purchasing larger cars and more trucks and reduced CAFE FFV credits. Despite the decrease in combined car and truck CAFE, on an individual basis, our vehicles continue to make fuel economy improvements. See Improving Fuel Economy. Combined fleet fuel economy has improved by 9% compared to 2009.

  3. The GHG value includes FFV credits.

  4. The increase in combined car and truck CO2 is primarily due to customers purchasing larger cars and more trucks. Our combined fleet CO2 emissions improved by 10% compared to 2009.

  5. Includes Advanced Technology Multipliers. Does not include A/C or Off-Cycle credits.

  6. EEA/EU COMMISSION published preliminary 2017 CO2 data. Official data expected in Q4 2018. Fleet performance without FFV, Eco-Innovation and Super credits.
