Vehicle Technologies Office FY 2015 Budget At-A-Glance

Transportation accounts for two-thirds of U.S. petroleum use, and on-road vehicles are responsible for 80% of this amount. Our dependence on petroleum creates significant national security and environmental challenges, limits our potential for economic growth, and hits our individual wallets – making it a high-value opportunity for change. The Vehicle Technologies Office develops and deploys advanced highway transportation technologies that reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while meeting or exceeding vehicle performance expectations.
