Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Sales Requirements and Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Standards

All Model Year (MY) 2014 and later passenger cars and light- and medium-duty vehicles must meet California motor vehicle emissions and compliance requirements specified in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations. Certain exceptions apply, including the zero emission vehicle sales requirements.

In November 2023, Delaware partially adopted the California vehicle emissions standards and compliance requirements set forth in the California Air Resources Board Advanced Clean Cars II regulation. These new emissions standards and requirements will begin with MY 2027 and require that 82% of new passenger vehicles sold in Delaware must be ZEVs by 2032.
