Biden Administration Discloses Its Clean Vehicle Goals
The White House has formally spoken about the subject of vehicle emissions, and it’s no surprise that more stringent regulations are coming. During the first week of August, the Biden administration released an executive order that sets a goal of making 50-percent of all new vehicle sales electric by 2030. In conjunction with the EPA, a proposed rule will tighten light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards for model years 2023-2026. In addition, the NHTSA announced it will unveil a parallel proposal to tighten the CAFE fuel economy standards. If finalized, the latter would all but completely undo the relaxed CAFE and GHG standards enacted under the Trump administration.
