The 2022 Transportation Annual Technology Baseline (ATB) provides current and future projections of cost and performance for select light-duty vehicles and fuels (and for select Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles).
The Transportation ATB provides data in a series of interactive charts for either a single year or a trajectory out to 2050 showing:
- Fuel economy, which is reported in miles per gallon gasoline equivalent and represents how efficiently a vehicle converts fuel during operation
- Modeled Vehicle Price, which represents an estimated cost, including manufacturing costs and profit, to the consumer purchasing a new vehicle
- Levelized cost of driving, which is an indicator of the cost of operation over the vehicle lifetime on a per-mile basis
- Emissions, which represent the well-to-wheels emissions (including emissions from fuel production to vehicle operation).
The Transportation ATB presents these metrics for individual powertrains and in comparison with other powertrains.
