General Motors Company Favors Setting Stringent Emissions Goals For The United States For 2030

Published on

General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) stated on Tuesday that it supported the establishment of stricter federal emissions regulations to ensure that at least fifty percent of all new vehicles sold by the year 2030 are emission-free.

General Motors Company Takes on EPA’s Requirements

As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) works on developing proposed requirements beginning with the 2027 model year and continuing through at least 2030, the largest automaker in the United States and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) has released a series of joint recommendations to encourage the use of electric vehicles.

According to General Motors Company and the Environmental Defense Fund, the newly proposed EPA regulations “should help to ensure that at least 50% of new vehicles delivered by 2030 are zero-emissions vehicles and consistent with eliminating tailpipe pollution from new passenger vehicles by 2035.”

Other environmental organizations have voiced worries regarding the possibility that the California Air Resource Board (CARB) may relax certain emission limits for General Motors Company and other automobile manufacturers in 2019 if they do not participate in a voluntary California emissions accord.

Tuesday, when asked how automakers should comply with standards for the near future, CARB Chair Liane Randolph responded by saying that it was up to the companies to choose “the most effective strategy to figure out how to take as much early action as possible.”

Last week, Steve Cliff, the new executive officer of CARB, stated that he had a meeting with Mary Barra, the chief officer of General Motors Company, in Detroit.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) adopted new light-duty tailpipe emissions limits in December. These requirements will be in effect through the 2026 model year and will reverse the rollback of car pollution cuts that former President Donald Trump instituted.

According to Mr. Barra, “the ultimate goal” of General Motors is to “eliminate tailpipe emissions from new light-duty vehicles by the year 2035.”

Joe Biden, the Vice President, has stated that he wants to see plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles account for fifty percent of all new vehicle sales by 2030. However, he has not endorsed a regulation passed in California last month that will eliminate the sale of new gas-only powered light-duty vehicles by 2035.

In March of 2020, the Republican administration of Donald Trump scaled down the goals that had been set by Barack Obama’s Democratic administration, requiring only 1.5% annual increases in efficiency until 2026. The Obama rule mandated accumulations of 5% each year.
