Alliance comments on California’s Deemed to Comply provision on Proposed Amendments to the Low-Emission Vehicle III Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulation


The Alliance continues to actively support a single national program (EPA, NHTSA, and CARB) covering all fifty states that drives ongoing improvements in fuel economy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The current One National Program (ONP) enables automakers to make predictable investments in a nationwide fleet of light-duty vehicles that advance, on a national scale, both reductions in GHG emissions and increases in fuel economy over time. While we believe the available data supports our view that the fuel economy and GHG standards originally developed for model years 2022–2025 need to be adjusted to reflect market realities, we continue to support standards requiring continued fleet average improvements in GHG emissions and fuel economy through the 2026 timeframe.
