This map contains state laws and regulations that affect plug-in electric passenger vehicles (PEVs). The policies include the following:

  • Fleet Vehicle Acquisition Requirements: Mandates for state or other types of fleets to acquire PEVs. This primarily affects state fleets.
  • Preferred Roadway and Parking Access: State requirements to provide access to High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes or designated parking for PEVs.
  • Financial Incentives: Tax credits, rebates, grants, inspection exemption, and vehicle-to-grid energy credits.
  • Regulation Exemptions: Emissions inspection exemptions and EV supply equipment regulation exemptions.
  • Sales Mandate: Production requirements for ZEVs.
  • Charging Infrastructure: State requirements to provide EV charging infrastructure.

Note that the policies highlighted here target plug-in electric passenger vehicles specifically. Thus, some policies by states apply to all vehicles and alternative fuels, including plug-in electric passenger vehicles, but are not included here.
