State legislators in California have agreed to a sweeping new set of laws that will make it illegal to sell new cars with gasoline engines from 2035. It’s a historic first for the USA and makes the Golden State one of the leading advocates for climate action.
The new rules also set specific milestones for the next 13 years where car sales have to meet certain criteria for energy efficiency.
A CNN report had more details on what will need to happen in the years ahead.
This sets a clear and achievable timeline for the car industry and doesn’t allow automakers to try and greenwash their sales figures.
While these new laws won’t impact the second-hand market, this does put a clear endpoint in sight for when we will see a drastic switch to zero-emissions vehicles.
