2025 Fuel Economy Standards Will Be Revealed in September, Could Include 62 MPG Mandate

My main issue with all this is the 'rationale' behind the overall savings. Fuel savings increased, but car cost is also increased. Fuel savings are something we pay as we use the vehicle, so it is a direct cost to use proportion. Car cost must be managed up front, and the subsequent monthly payment, down payment, and TAXES must all be figured out based on my up front cost. So with interest, what will that extra up front cost run me?
What I'd like to know is what the "actual" figure is. Just like CAFE numbers are based on a different metric than the EPA standards, does 62.5 actually translate to something like 45 mpg?
