Semi trucks on interstate highway

Clean trucks and buses

Every day, trucks and buses carry the goods, packages and people that keep our economy running.

Usually powered by diesel engines, they are among the dirtiest vehicles on the road.

The pollution from their exhaust pipes causes serious harm to our climate and health, from asthma and other breathing problems to premature death. It often hits communities of color and low-income communities the hardest, because they’re more likely to be near highways, ports and other high-traffic areas.

With electric vehicles, a zero-emission future that benefits our environment, people and the economy is possible.
