When it comes to clean cars, states have led the way. Twelve states plus the District of Columbia have adopted California’s more stringent Advanced Clean Cars standards, together representing about 30 percent of the new vehicle sales market. A subset of these states have also adopted California’s ZEV standard.
In October 2013, Governors from eight states signed a Memorandum of Understanding to put 3.3 million zero-emission vehicles on the roads in their states within a dozen years. They followed this announcement with the release in May 2014 of a ZEV Action Plan similar to the plan initiated in California.
In advance of ARB’s 2017 review of the Midterm Review, more than 100 local elected leaders from Section 177 states (CT, ME, MD, MA, NJ, NY, OR, RI and VT) signed letters demonstrating their support for developing a strong ZEV marketplace within their states, cities and communities. More than 18 state Legislators signed a letter, most of whom represent chairs of transportation, energy, climate or technology committees. Dozens of mayors from throughout the Section 177 states also lent their support. You can read the letters here.
