What is the timeline?
It is important to note that this rule has not yet been approved. It has been proposed and will be sent to the CARB Board for a decision in December 2021. If approved, the rule would be phased in with an initial 50% purchasing requirement before 100% ZEV purchases are required in 2027.
* Fleets in certain low population ‘designated’ counties are exempt from the phase one requirement but would be affected by the 100% 2027 requirement (i.e., Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Lassen, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Mono, Nevada, Plumas, San Benito; Shasta; Sierra, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne, and Yuba Counties).
**Plug-in-hybrids count the same as ZEVs until 2035.
