    EPA Proposes New Emissions Standards Starting in 2027

    Segment Transcript

    So the EPA is proposing new emissions standards starting in 2027. Auto manufacturers say no problem, that’s what we’re aiming for anyway. Plus nearly 3 out of 4 Americans are interested in buying EVs and Hybrids. So I talked to Consumer Reports’ Chris Harto and he says this all adds up to more and more EVs and hybrids on the roads. Harto: "This is a proposed rule for model-year 2027 through 2032. They're technology neutral emissions standards, so telling automakers they have to hit certain targets for their emissions, and they can do that with any technology that they want to. But more than likely it's going to lead to significant growth in electric vehicles, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles. I mean these rules are really aligned with automakers' commitments that they've already made to their shareholders, the investments that they're making and really where the market is going and consumer demand is trending."  Car reviews, truck advice, auto news, it's all at CarPro.com. I'm Laura Reynolds.
