California's Vehicle Emissions Regulations Will Be Compliant With GM

On Sunday, GM announced that it has agreed to acknowledge California's power under the Clean Air Act to establish vehicle emission requirements.

According to GM, the action will qualify the Detroit automaker for government fleet acquisitions by the state of California.

In a letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom, the carmaker pledged to respect the state's authorities. In the letter, GM stated that it is "dedicated to complying with California's standards."

In November 2020, shortly after Joe Biden was elected president, GM shifted course and no longer supported the Trump administration's effort to prevent California from creating its own emissions laws.

GM declared in January that new light-duty vehicles will be free of tailpipe emissions by 2035. GM announced in June that it would increase global expenditure on electrified and driverless vehicles to $35 billion by 2025, up 30% from its previous prediction.
