HVIP ZEPCert Requirement and Other Updates

All vehicles eligible for HVIP are required to be certified at the vehicle level. Zero-Emission Powertrain Certification (ZEPCert) will be an additional requirement for all new HVIP vehicle eligible applications submitted to CARB on or after January 1, 2023, for all applicable zero-emission powertrains and the trucks and buses they are installed in.

Manufacturers are encouraged to start the process of obtaining this certification in advance of the deadline. ZEPCert is a newer certification pathway administered by CARB for zero-emission powertrains and heavy-duty vehicles that helps support end-user fleets and ensures information regarding such vehicles and their powertrains are effectively and consistently communicated to purchasers and accelerates progress towards greater vehicle repairability. More information about this certification is available at https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/our-work/programs/zero-emission-powertrain-certification.  

Information on how to add a vehicle to our eligible catalog can be found at www.californiahvip.org/sellers.
