GM challenges Trump administration to start a nationwide zero-emissions vehicle program

The ZEV credit program is currently in danger as part of the Trump administration’s push to roll back strict Obama-era fuel economy and vehicle emissions standards. In August, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed a new rule that would only require automakers to reach an average fleet fuel economy of 37 miles per gallon by 2025, instead of the 50 miles per gallon target set by the Obama EPA.

The Trump administration also plans to challenge California’s ZEV credit system and the state’s waiver to the Clean Air Act, which allows it to set its own strict emissions standards that are separate from those of the federal government.
