California Air Resources Board (CARB) seeks to set strict emissions criteria for new engines sold in the state starting in 2024

The Heavy-Duty Low NOx Omnibus Rule, which looks to set strict emissions criteria for new engines sold in the state starting in 2024, is under consideration by CARB. The Truck Dealers Alliance of California (TDAC) has been urging California Governor Gavin Newsom to direct the CARB to align with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on a single nationwide Low-NOx truck engine standard for 2027. For California-based fleets, a California-only engine standard will result in higher equipment costs, which will place those fleets and their dealer partners at a competitive disadvantage when contending with fleets and dealerships based out of state.  A single, national engine standard across the United States is the only way to ensure a consistent and level playing field for all equipment operators and vendors in California.
