General Motors Pushes for National Zero Emissions Vehicle Program

General Motors believes millions of electric vehicles could hit the road by 2030 if a new credit-based program is instituted across the U.S.

The automaker will soon present a plan to the U.S. government that would establish a National Zero Emissions Vehicle (NZEV) program across the country. If all were to go well and the program is fully supported by the government and automakers, GM believes more than 7 million long-range electric vehicles could be on the road by 2030. That would mean eliminating 375 million tons of CO2 emissions between 2021 and 2030, according to the company.
