Plug In America applauds Colorado for adopting the zero-emissions vehicle mandate

LOS ANGELES – On Friday, August 16, the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission adopted the zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) mandate that has previously been adopted by California and nine other states. The mandate requires auto manufacturers to sell more ZEVs in the state.

Plug In America Executive Director Joel Levin said:

“We are thrilled that Colorado has joined the ten other states that know that zero-emissions vehicles are better for consumers, for the local economy and for our air quality. There are more than 40 models of plug-in electric vehicles available and this adoption will give Colorado residents more options to purchase the vehicles they are looking for. Colorado is the first state to adopt the ZEV mandate in a decade and we strongly encourage more states to do the same.”
