EPA’s Proposed Rule to Cut Vehicle Pollution Could Provide a Big Boost for Cleaner Cars
Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its proposed rule to reduce emissions from light- and medium-duty vehicles for model year 2026 and beyond.
Statement from Janelle London, Coltura’s Co-Executive Director
“With transportation accounting for 27% of greenhouse gas emissions in the US, drastic cuts to gasoline use and tailpipe pollution are critical. We applaud the EPA’s proposed standards for new vehicles – they would provide a strong foundation for a multi-pronged strategy for moving the country beyond gasoline. Next we need bold action to help those drivers burning the most gasoline (“gasoline superusers”) switch to EVs as soon as possible – especially the gasoline-burdened families who are lower income.”
