Minnesota has officially adopted regulations championed by Gov. Tim Walz to encourage the switchover to electric vehicles.

The “clean car” rules published Monday in the State Register take effect in 2024 with the 2025 model year.

They’ll require manufacturers and dealers to supply more electric vehicles for the Minnesota marketplace.

The Walz administration says the rules will lead to cleaner air and help combat climate change by increasing the availability of electric cars.
