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

Maryland has adopted the California motor vehicle emissions standards and compliance requirements specified in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations. Manufacturers must meet the greenhouse gas emissions standard and the ZEV production and sales requirements. The Maryland Department of Environment may adopt regulations to exempt certain vehicles from the program, including motor vehicles sold for registration outside of Maryland and motor vehicles that would be exempt from the LEV program established under California law.

Beginning September 1, 2023, Maryland adopted the California vehicle emissions standards and compliance requirements set forth in the California Air Resources Board Advanced Clean Cars II regulation.
