Australian laggards in the new car order

This week's graphs of the week highlight just how far Australia has fallen behind the world in fuel economy standards, as well as offering a sneak peak at the future for passenger cars. Hybrids, it seems, will be dominant by 2030.

This week's charts of the week show the projected car efficiencies of other developed countries (except Japan) and the technological advancements that have enabled improved fuel economy. Australia's proposed fuel economy standard for 2024 is seemingly a step in the right direction but how do we stack up against our allies? Not too well, it appears.
