GM Backs Setting Tough Emissions Targets for 2030
GM is backing tougher federal emissions standards to help ensure at least 50% of the new vehicles sold by 2030 are zero emission models. GM and the Environmental Defense Fund released recommendations to boost EVs as the EPA develops proposed requirements from the 2027 model year through at least 2030 model year vehicles. The EPA finalized new light-duty tailpipe emissions requirements through the 2026 model year and GM has a goal to eliminating the tailpipe from all new light duty vehicles by 2035. With all these regulations the EPA is wondering to what degree they will push all automakers to start building EVs.
