This rule requires public fleets in the SCAQMD's jurisdiction operating passenger car, light-duty truck, or medium-duty vehicle fleets to acquire low-emitting gasoline or alternative-fuel vehicles when procuring these vehicles.
- This rule applies to:
- Government agencies (such as federal, state, regional, county, and city government departments and agencies) with 15 or more non-exempt vehicles
- Any special districts (such as water, air, sanitation, transit) with 15 or more non-exempt vehicles
- School districts with 15 or more non-exempt vehicles
- Subsection (f) of this rule exempts certain vehicles, such as emergency vehicles operated by federal, state, or local law enforcement agencies or fire departments, or paramedic and rescue vehicles. This rule does not apply to any heavy-duty on-road vehicles, i.e, those vehicles over 14,000 pounds-gross vehicle weight rating. (See Rule 1196.)
Finding a Rule-Compliant Vehicle
A list of Rule 1191-compliant vehicles is provided in the following tables. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is the agency responsible for certifying new vehicles for sale in California. Upon certification CARB requires the manufacturer to attach a Vehicle Emission Control Information label (PDF, 122kb) to the underside of the hood of every passenger vehicle. CARB certifies engines and vehicles on an ongoing basis throughout the calendar year. As such, if you are interested in a particular vehicle and it is not found on this list, and you are unable to access the Vehicle Emission Control Information label, you may contact CARB directly or the SCAQMD contact listed below to determine if the vehicle or engine of interest is certified at LEV or cleaner. At this time, diesel powered engines or vehicles do not meet the requirements of Rule 1191.
