This statistic represents adjusted emission levels for light-duty vehicles sold as 2017, 2018, and 2019 model year vehicles in the United States, by vehicle type. MY 2019 SUV cars on U.S. roads produced about 327 grams of carbon dioxide per mile. Adjusted carbon dioxide emission values reflect real world estimates. On April 1, 2020, the Trump administration finalized new fuel economy and emissions standards for the period between 2021 and 2026. Several federal states plan to challenge what is essentially a rollback of Obama-era fuel efficiency standards for automobiles.
