June 2018, Colorado Governor, John Hickenlooper, signed an executive order for the state which indicates the adoption of reducing harmful emissions and establishing low emission vehicle (LEV) standards which mirror the California LEV Program. This action supports the state’s overall goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26 percent by 2025. Sources imply that this can be achieved by utilizing technological advancements in the clean energy field and implementing cost-effective strategies. Colorado is the 13th state to join the fight for improved air-quality and emissions standards. These actions significantly contribute to the push for automakers to adopt improved clean-car technology to boost the growth of low emission vehicles.
