National Highway Traffic Safety Administration August 30, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Polaris Industries Inc. and Goupil Industrie SA; Receipt of Petition for Temporary Exemption
Document Number: 2021-18634
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-08-30
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements, Polaris Industries Inc. and Goupil Industrie SA (collectively, ``petitioners''), have petitioned NHTSA for an exemption of the ``Picnic-G6,'' an all-electric truck that the petitioners state will be used as part of a grocery delivery service. The petitioners seek exemption from nine Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) on the basis that an exemption would make the development or field evaluation of a low-emission vehicle easier and would not unreasonably lower the safety or impact protection level of that vehicle. NHTSA is publishing this document in accordance with statutory and administrative provisions, and requests comments on the petition. NHTSA has made no judgment at this time on the merits of the petition.
Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard; Final Listing of 2019 Light Duty Truck Lines Subject to the Requirements of This Standard and Exempted Vehicle Lines for Model Year 2019
Document Number: 2021-18632
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-08-30
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule announces NHTSA's determination that there are no new model year 2019 light duty truck lines subject to the parts- marking requirements of the Federal motor vehicle theft prevention standard. The agency determined no new models were high-theft or had major parts that are interchangeable with a majority of the covered major parts of passenger car or multipurpose passenger vehicle lines. This final rule also identifies those vehicle lines that have been granted an exemption from the parts- marking requirements because they are equipped with antitheft devices determined to meet certain criteria.
