Electric Vehicles

MnDOT's 2017 Sustainability Report sets the goal of reducing GHG emissions from Minnesota's transportation sector by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. Light-duty vehicles generate the majority of transportation GHGs in the state. While federal fuel economy standards will lower emissions in the future, electrifying light duty vehicles is an important strategy to meet the goal.

Minnesota EV Strategic Plan

Much has changed in the electric vehicle (EV) landscape in the last two years with more automakers making large commitments to eliminate gasoline vehicles in the future, more EVs on the market, and a new federal administration with large EV goals. MnDOT is now looking for input on Minnesota’s EV strategic plan that will set the state up for success as the EV landscape continues to evolve, all while working to meet the state’s climate and public health goals.
