Engine manufacturers have invested heavily in engineering technological
solutions and design changes to meet the new NOx emission standard that
is required for 2010 model-year engines and see no technological
barriers to meeting the standard, according to EMA President Jed Mandel.

"All engine and vehicle manufacturers will have product available to
meet the applicable emissions standards when 2010 models are
introduced," said Mandel. "Engine manufacturers successfully brought
compliant products to the market when the new emissions standards for
PM and NOx were implemented in 2007, and our members are on track to
meet the 2010 emissions standards as well. Fleet and truck owners can
be confident that reliable, durable and fuel efficient vehicles meeting
the 2010 emission standards will be available."

Addressing current economic conditions and implementation of the 2010
standards, Mandel continued: "Fleet owners and operators are
experiencing very tough times due to the current national economic
conditions, as are engine and vehicle manufacturers. We also recognize
that customers have questions regarding new and unfamiliar technology
that will be required for 2010 vehicles, and that those uncertainties
have the potential to impact new vehicle sales over the next couple of
years. On those issues, EMA continues to support efforts to provide
financial incentives to customers and early adopters of the 2010
technology as a way to assist fleet owners and to ensure that the
anticipated emissions reduction benefits from the new technology are
realized."
