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) must develop the North Carolina Motor Fleet ZEV Plan (Plan) by October 1, 2019. The Plan will identify the types of trips for which ZEV-use is feasible, recommend infrastructure necessary to support ZEV use, and develop 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. (Reference Executive Order 80, 2018)
