Most new vehicles with 7,500 or fewer miles on their odometers need to be equipped with factory-installed California-certified advanced emission control systems in order to be sold and registered in Massachusetts.
In October 2013, Massachusetts Governor Charles Baker and his counterparts from California, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) committing to coordinated action to ensure the successful implementation of their respective states' zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) programs.
ZEVs include pure battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. Collectively, Massachusetts and the seven other states are committed to having at least 3.3 million ZEVs operating on their roadways by 2025. The MOU identifies joint cooperative actions the states will undertake and additional actions they are considering to build a robust market for ZEVs.
The Massachusetts Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Program requires most new vehicles with 7,500 or fewer miles on their odometers to be equipped with factory-installed California-certified advanced emission control systems.
All new car dealerships in Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, Maine, and California sell LEVs. Dealerships bordering these states may also sell LEVs. If you buy a new car from a dealer outside of Massachusetts, be sure to ask for documentation that your new vehicle is a LEV.
How to identify a LEV:
How the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) identifies a LEV:
Non-LEV vehicles may not be registered in Massachusetts! Return your vehicle to the seller. Auto makers have informed their dealers that they may sell only LEVs to Massachusetts residents.
Every vehicle that is newly registered in Massachusetts is required to undergo a state safety inspection and emissions test within seven days of registration. To learn more, visit: Massachusetts Vehicle Check
Depending on the vehicle's model year and where you are bringing it from, you may need to satisfy additional requirements.
