CoPIRG is calling on the AQCC to pass the Colorado Clean Cars rule in the upcoming hearing scheduled for October 18-20 in Denver. The proposed rule will direct vehicle manufacturers to make and sell more electric vehicles (zero-emission vehicles including battery-electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles) starting with model year 2027. By model year 2032, it would direct auto manufacturers to sell approximately 80% electric vehicles (EVs) – significantly improving air quality and health conditions across Colorado by decreasing the harmful emissions that contribute to air pollution.

“The Colorado Clean Cars rule would be a major win for public health and consumer choice here in Colorado,” said public health advocate Alex Simon. “Not only would it help our state accelerate the transition to a cleaner, healthier transportation system, but it also would  guarantee consumers in Colorado have the maximum number of options around electric vehicles in future years.” Read the full release here
