Our land, our air, our water, our children’s future. Minnesota is leading in pushing for innovative solutions to the climate crisis, including implementing clean car stands — requiring car manufacturers to provide more clean car options in Minnesota. Clean car standards will protect our environment and our health, increase consumer choice and save Minnesotans money, and help grow our economy.
Minnesotans for Clean Cars is a coalition of Minnesota-based organizations that believe that adopting clean car standards in our state is a smart solution to reducing climate pollution, is consumer friendly, and will benefit Minnesotans’ bottom line.
Any car currently available to you will continue to be available if Clean Car Standards are adopted in Minnesota. These standards do not force anyone to give up their current vehicle or choose one that doesn’t work for their lifestyle. Minnesota consumers will simply have more options for purchasing electric vehicles and new models with increased efficiency. These standards would not implement a personal vehicle inspection program in Minnesota; instead, new models from auto manufacturers sold in our state would be required to improve efficiency each year.
