Yes, the main **RD effort** is to use low loading. To me that implies that currently they use more than "low" and RD needed to get to "low".
In any event, I don't think NG vehicles will be any significant market share. Pure EV will be more than NG for sure. NG refueling infrastructure is the problem. With EV, any house with electric service is a potential refueling station. Yes, there are charging time issues, grid issues, range etc. The article also said that not really practical for personal autos since tank takes up most of the trunk area. Better suited for light trucks, busses. But I think for fleets of small vehicles with well defined short routes EV is much better. My local post office has about 60 vehicles with well defined short start/stop routes. And they all come back to the barn every night for charging. FDX and UPS would be ideal also.
But primary auto user will be gasoline engine, or gas-EV hybrid both need PD cc.
And then there is cold-fusion - (just kidding). :-)
Due to rapidly expanding wealth and prosperity, the number of coal power plants and cars on China's roads is rapidly growing, creating an ongoing pollution problem. China enacted its first emissions controls on automobiles in 2000, equivalent to Euro I standards. China's State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) upgraded emission controls again on July 1, 2004 to the Euro II standard. More stringent emission standard, National Standard III, equivalent to Euro III standards, went into effect on July 1, 2007. Plans are for Euro IV standards to take effect in 2010. Beijing introduced the Euro IV standard in advance on January 1, 2008, became the first city in mainland China to adopt this standard.
EURO IV does not mean 4 ccs. It's just standard number. Jeez....
