This paper is the first in a suite of reports. Paper one focuses on technological options for improving fuel efficiency of internal combustion engine (ICE)-powered road vehicles (passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses). Technical options addressed, which may assist in reaching carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction targets on the vehicle level, include hybridization and weight reduction.
