Frequently Asked Questions

What are the national low emission vehicle standards?

The National Low Emission Vehicle program covered vehicles below 6,000 pounds GVWR and adapted the national standards to accommodate California's stricter regulations. Instead of basing emissions on vehicle weight, Tier II standards are divided into several numbered "bins".

Which is the only state to have stricter emission standards?

California has generally been the exception, having been granted a waiver and given allowance to set stricter standards as it had established its own via the California Air Resources Board prior to the 1970 CAA amendments.

Whats the law on emissions testing in massachusetts?

You asked what the Massachusetts law is regarding older cars and exhaust emissions testing and how this compares with Connecticut's law. Massachusetts' law allows state officials responsible for the emissions program to exempt vehicles that are 15 years old before the year in which their inspection occurs.

How does californias zero emissions mandate affect the car?

The state's latest update to its zero-emissions vehicle rules, usually called the ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mandate, won't resolve the argument, but it will bring big changes to the mix of cars on sale in California, not to mention at least nine other states that collectively make up nearly a third of the U.S. market for new-car sales.
