Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think a key issue you highlight is the relationship between regulations and technology.

From Brad Plumer comes a graph of patent filings for sulfur dioxide-control technologies for electric power plants.

So it is with car design and manufacture. It is possible to get this kind of jump using fuel taxes, but the level of fuel taxes required is very high and certainly more economically (not to mention politically) damaging than just making a regulatory limit on new Car CO2 emissions.
