This afternoon, Colorado’s Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) voted to approve the  Colorado Clean Cars rule, which will direct vehicle manufacturers to make and sell more electric vehicles starting with model year 2027.  

By adopting this rule, consumers in Colorado are guaranteed access to the best electric vehicles on the market moving forward. Those vehicles are not only cheaper to drive, but are better for our air quality and better for the environment.
