Car dealers suffer setback in fight against New Mexico’s mandated sale of EVs



A state board in New Mexico pulled the plug on opponents fighting mandated increases in the number of electric vehicles for sale across the state.

Dealers had been fighting the mandate pushed by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham who contends the required sale of EVs will help curb emissions and address climate change. The state Environmental Improvement Board voted against the New Mexico Automotive Dealers Association as the group takes its legal case to the state Court of Appeals.

The Navajo Nation is opposed to the mandates saying it comes down to an affordability issue caused by the high price of EVs reported the Associated Press.
