Colorado regulators voted overwhelmingly for the state to join California and nine others in adopting zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) mandates that will press automakers to develop more electric vehicle models.

The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission voted 8-1 on Friday to approve the standard, aligning with a climate plan released by Democratic Gov. Jared Polis in May that calls for 100% renewables and increased electrified transportation.

Adopting the ZEV mandate will save Colorado up to $65 million annually by 2025 and up to $2.2 billion a year by 2040, “in economic and pollution benefits,” according to an analysis by the Environmental Defense Fund.
