Transportation - Goal 4

Michigan-produced clean fuel passenger vehicles and commercial trucks - which emit little or zero tailpipe pollution -  are standard throughout the state and across the nation.

IN 20 YEARS - 35% of vehicles sold are considered zero tailpipe pollution vehicles. Most of these are produced in Michigan, in large part because of incentives and consumer demand.

IN 10 YEARS - State tax incentives exist for individual or fleet purchases of electric vehicles. A smart rate has been put into place that provides a significant discount for charging electric vehicles during off-peak hours. The State of Michigan purchases clean fuel passenger vehicles for its fleets.

IN 2 YEARS -  Electric vehicles are designed and produced in Michigan – the Chevy Volt. The Michigan legislature has begun work on a “Volt-Ready” legislative package that prepares for a surge of electric vehicles in the field.
