The legislative and regulatory landscape concerning electric vehicles (EVs) continues to undergo significant changes. EV regulation shares many elements of traditional automobile regulation, but the technologies involved also create new areas of regulatory coverage and manufacturer concern. This alert discusses California’s industry-shaping Advanced Clean Car II regulations, California’s technology-forcing electric truck regulations, NHTSA reporting and recall enforcement risks, other federal regulatory updates, developments in EV supply chain regulations, the developing space of battery recycling regulation, privacy and cybersecurity concerns, and charging infrastructure incentives and regulations.
For vehicle manufacturers, this alert “Omnibus Electric Vehicle Update” by Gibson Dunn is meant to act as a quick guide to the current EV regulatory landscape and as a map for spotting where regulatory currents are heading.
