Proposed Zero-Emissions Regulation for Small Off-Road Engines to Advance Electrification

Horiba says a proposed emissions regulation in California could create or accelerate adoption of electrification in low horsepower equipment.


On this week’s OEM Industry Update, we speak with Josh Israel, Market Development Manager, Horiba Automotive Test Systems, about the potential for a new zero-emissions regulation in California for small non-road engines. The new regulation would create or accelerate the market for electric solutions in lower horsepower equipment, such as that used in lawn and landscape equipment.

Israel discusses the potential impact of the new regulation on engine manufacturers and OEMs, and the testing Horiba can provide to help ensure emissions compliance.
