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

Vermont has adopted the California motor vehicle emissions standards and compliance requirements specified in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations. These regulations apply to new vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of up to 14,000 pounds. Manufacturers must meet the greenhouse gas emissions standard and the ZEV production and sales requirements.

In December 2022, Vermont 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 model year 2026 and require that 100% of new passenger vehicles sold in Vermont must be ZEVs by 2035.
