EPA to Consider Tougher Emissions Rules for Heavy Trucks

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will consider adopting more rigorous greenhouse gas emissions for heavy trucks after Congress has passed new incentives to help accelerate the promotion of zero emission vehicles. The Truck & Engine Manufactures Association that represents companies such as Daimler Trucks, Caterpillar and Cummins, previously raised concerns that the EPAs proposal could boost cost and result in customers keeping their higher emitting trucks for longer.

The EPA will be issuing a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking to consider more rigorous Greenhouse Gas standards for model years 2027 through 2029 in December and plans to finalize the proposed smog-forming truck rules.
