Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Requirements

State-owned vehicle fleets must prioritize ZEVs in the purchase or lease of new vehicles and use ZEVs for agency travel when feasible. The Department of Administration (Department) developed the North Carolina Motor Fleet ZEV Plan (Plan). The Plan identifies the types of trips for which ZEV-use is feasible, recommends infrastructure necessary to support ZEV use, and develops ZEV procurement options and strategies. The Department must also provide information about each agency’s ZEV acquisitions and miles driven by vehicle type by October 1, 2019, and annually thereafter. For more information, see the Department’s Climate Change & Clean Energy: Plans & Progress website. (Reference Executive Order 80, 2018)
