NATSO Files Comments on EPA's Proposed Light and Medium-Duty Emissions Standards

Added on: July 6, 2023


NATSO on July 5 urged EPA to adopt a technology-neutral approach in its final emissions standards for light and medium-duty vehicles. In joint comments filed with NACS and SIGMA, the organizations said the current state of the EV charging market renders the electrification timeline proposed under this rulemaking unachievable; and EPA is exacerbating the emissions impact of this reality by forcing a single technology rather than harnessing the near-term decarbonization potential of other options such as improved fuel economy and renewable liquid fuels, in addition to incentivizing more aspirational longer-term technologies.
