The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday unveiled sweeping proposals to significantly accelerate clean vehicle requirements and shape the direction of truck manufacturing.

Heavy-duty vehicle emission requirements would be more stringent starting with model year 2027, according to a proposed rule, and move the industry ”beyond what was finalized″ in a Phase 2 carbon dioxide emissions rule from 2016. 

The agency also proposed new carbon dioxide emission standards for model years 2028 through 2032 that would get progressively tougher and have 25% of new long-haul tractors produce zero emissions for model years 2032 and beyond.
