About 1/3 of Class 3-8 trucks in US equipped with advanced cleaner diesel engines
3 July 2014
About one-third of all medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks registered in the United States (2.9 million of 8.8 million trucks)—are now equipped with newer technology clean diesel engines, according to data compiled by IHS Automotive for the Diesel Technology Forum (DTF).
The data includes total registration information on Class 3-8 trucks from 2007 through 2013 in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Beginning in 2007, all heavy duty diesel trucks sold had to meet particulate emissions levels of no more than 0.01 grams per brake horse-power hour (g/bhp-hr).

Texas, California and Indiana have the most overall number of clean diesel trucks, as well as the highest number of post-2010 diesel trucks (although California and Indiana swap positions); beginning with the 2010 model year, 100% of the new on-road heavy-duty diesel engines were required to meet the EPA’s stringent NOx standards.
