To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollution, the Air Quality Control Commission adopted the Colorado Clean Cars standard proposed by the Air Pollution Control Division in October 2023. The final standard directs vehicle manufacturers to make and sell more electric vehicles starting with model year 2027. Electric vehicles are defined as zero-emission vehicles, including battery-electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles. By model year 2032, the Colorado Clean Cars standard will direct vehicle manufacturers to sell 82% electric vehicles. The standard also requires new conventional cars and passenger trucks to produce less air pollution.
