REVIEW ADVANCED CLEAN FLEETS ZERO-EMISSION VEHICLE REGULATIONS SUMMARY HERE
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved a groundbreaking regulation called “Advanced Clean Fleets,” which aims to transition medium and heavy-duty vehicles to zero-emission technology by 2045.
Subsequently, the Chamber sent a letter to Ambassador Esteban Moctezuma Barragán and President AMLO, along with business leaders from both sides of the border, outlining support and the need for strong binational efforts to ensure a successful transition that does not have an impact on our integrated supply chains, which are a vital part of the economy in our border region.
The rule requires manufacturers to commit to zero-emission technology, includes an end to combustion truck sales in 2036, and provides regulatory certainty to the heavy-duty market. These regulations offer fleet owners flexibility and promise cost savings, as well as benefits for California communities.
Trucks account for only 6% of California’s vehicles but generate over 35% of transportation-related nitrogen oxide emissions and a quarter of on-road greenhouse gas emissions. The regulation is intended to improve air quality and mitigate climate change impacts in California communities.
