Biden administration considers slowing key emissions rules – a potential blow to EV growth

·1 min

The Biden administration is considering relaxing vehicle emissions rules it proposed last year. This would give automakers more time to meet requirements that would increase the sales of electric vehicles (EVs). The Environmental Protection Agency’s vehicle emissions rule is a key part of President Joe Biden’s climate agenda. Instead of the previously proposed rule, the EPA is considering delaying the requirements until after 2030. The rule is expected to be released in the spring. The change has been criticized as a concession to automakers, while others see it as a way to ensure a gradual reduction in emissions.
