Washington Gas, (AP) – General Motors CEO Dan Akerson said new fuel efficiency requirements considered by the government are “fairly ambitious” and suggested that Congress look for ways to revise the standards next few years.
Akerson met Friday with members of the Michigan congressional delegation. He was appointed CEO in September and added the title of president of GM at the beginning of the year.
The executive self raised concerns about fuel efficiency requirements under discussion for 2017 to 2025 model years. Government regulation said the fleet of new vehicles may need to meet a standard of somewhere from 47 miles per gallon to 62 miles per gallon by 2025, nearly double the current requirement.
Akerson said the increases would be difficult to reach and said Congress could consider revising the rules every two to three years.
