The state of Nevada is joining California and more than a dozen other states in a coalition advocating for tougher clean car standards that are supposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.
Governor Steve Sisolak is preparing rules that would implement those standards in Nevada. The Clean Car Standards reduce smog and improve air quality by setting a minimum standard for the sale of low-emission vehicles, such as plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles. By 2025, 6% to 8% of all new vehicles shipped for sale in Nevada must fit the low-emission standard.
