China set to act on fuel economy
Chinese government prepares to impose minimum fuel economy standards on new cars that will be significantly more stringent than those in United States.

Chinese government prepares to impose minimum fuel economy standards on new cars that will be significantly more stringent than those in United States; new standards, first ever imposed by China, are intended to save energy and force automakers to introduce latest hybrid engines and other technology in China; country is taking series of steps to regulate its rapidly growing auto industry; earlier this year it required that air bags be provided for both front-seat occupants in most new vehicles and that new family vehicles sold in major cities meet air pollution standards nearly as strict as those in Western Europe and US: Western automakers may have to modify vehicles they build in China to measure up to new standards; new standards will require new cars, vans and sport utility vehicles to get two miles a gallon of fuel more in 2005 than average required in US, and five miles more in 2008.
