Chinese Fuel Economy Standards

So, here is some news on the China's plans to regulate fuel economy. China has decided to go with the weight class system adpted by the Japanese, but the individual class size is a lot smaller. Thus, there may be a slight incentive to add weight to the vehicles to fall in to the next (less stringent) class. However, the effects of this happening should be small. I have no idea about what India is planning to do on this front. It is equally, if not more, dependent on foreign oil and should move quickly on this front while the auto market is still nascent.
