FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Background Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. section 32902(d), NHTSA may exempt a low volume manufacturer of passenger automobiles from the generally applicable average fuel economy standards if NHTSA concludes that those standards are more stringent than the maximum feasible average fuel economy for that manufacturer and if NHTSA establishes an alternative standard for that manufacturer at its maximum feasible level. Under the statute, a low volume manufacturer is one that manufactured (worldwide) fewer than 10,000 passenger automobiles in the second model year before the model year for which the exemption is sought (the affected model year) and that will manufacture fewer than 10,000 passenger automobiles in the affected model year. In determining the maximum feasible average fuel economy, the agency is required under 49 U.S.C. 32902(f) to consider: (1) Technological feasibility. (2) Economic practicability. (3) The effect of other Federal motor vehicle standards on fuel economy, and E:\FR\FM\22MYR1.SGM 22MYR1
