Current Zero-Emission Vehicle Regulation
CARB has been the leader in the development of programs designed to reduce emissions from mobile sources. Mobile sources account for well over half of the emissions which contribute to ozone and particulate matter air pollution in California. Zero-Emission vehicles (ZEVs) and near-zero-emission vehicles are a key element of California's plan for attaining health-based air quality standards.
The following files contain the latest “clean” versions (without underline and strikeout) of the California ZEV regulations:
- 2009 - 2017 Model Year Requirements (CCR Section 1962.1)
- 2018 and Subsequent Model Year Requirements (CCR Section 1962.2)
- Electric Vehicle Charger Requirements (CCR Section 1962.3)
