Global Automakers Sends Letter to CARB Supporting Over-Compliance Option in ZEV Program

Global Automakers sent a letter to the Chairman of the California Air Resources Board today in support of CARB's commitment to include in the California Clean Cars Program (which includes, among other things, the ZEV mandate and greenhouse gas regulations), an option that would allow some of the ZEV requirements to be lessened in the early years if a manufacturer over-complies with the MY2017-2025 federal fuel economy/greenhouse gas standards. The over-compliance option will have greater environmental benefits, in terms of GHG reductions, and will provide more flexibility for auto manufacturers to meet the stringent new federal standards and California ZEV mandate.
