ACT Reports Regulations Impacting U.S. Commercial Vehicle Market

In the release of its Commercial Vehicle Dealer Digest, ACT Research reported that the new low NOx Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will impact the U.S. commercial vehicle market, citing past regulatory examples.

The report, which combines ACT’s proprietary data analysis from a wide variety of industry sources, paints a comprehensive picture of trends impacting transportation and commercial vehicle markets.

“Thanks to the EPA’s GHG regulations, and the industry’s ability to rise to the challenge over the past decade, it is now possible to spec vehicles achieving close to nine miles per gallon, with minimal associated costs for value derived,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s president and senior analyst. “January’s ANPR from the EPA promises the return of demand altering regulations that target tailpipe emissions, and while we are unwilling to drop a number presently, the new low NOx proposal could have major implications for the industry ahead of its proposed 2026 implementation.”

Vieth also spoke about the potential impact of the proposed regulations on EV adoption in the commercial vehicle industry. “Fleet electrification could benefit from regulations that reduce diesel’s inherent advantages by raising the cost of diesel power,” he said.
