California’s 2035 plan of not allowing the sale of new gasoline-only cars will significantly help the state’s efforts to stop climate change. The new regulations are created to put pressure on automakers to launch greener vehicles on the market as soon as possible. It comes after Governor Gavin Newsom’s goal to speed up the move away from fossil fuels in 2020. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) expects that 35% of new cars sold in the state by 2026 will be hybrid, electric, or driven by hydrogen. By 2030 and 2035, respectively, 100% of car sales would be subject to the rules. The announcement is the most recent action taken by California in its campaign to make environmental regulations that are stricter than those of the US federal government. Tesla senior counsel Joseph Mendelson agreed that CARB’s proposal was sensible and a step toward California taking the lead in electrifying the light duty sector. According to the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, more work has to be done to promote the market for electric vehicles.
