Global Automakers and the Alliance, on behalf of the auto industry, have jointly filed an alternative regulatory proposal to implement the California Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) regulation in Colorado and has reached agreement with the Colorado Energy Office and Department of Transportation on this alternative proposal. This regulatory proposal addresses concerns with earlier proposals by providing the support Coloradans need to buy electric vehicles, while allowing auto manufacturers to transition into Colorado’s ZEV program in model years 2023-2025, with the ability of automakers to earn early credits in the 2021-2022 model years.

This filing will be considered by the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) at their August 13-16 hearing.
