California Board Outlines Timeline To Phase Out Gasoline Vehicle Sales By 2035
On December 16, NACS reported the California Air Resources Board has outlined a timeline for phasing out gasoline vehicle sales by 2035.
According to the plan, zero-emission would make up 34 percent of sales in 2027, 43 percent in 2028, 51 percent in 2029, 61 percent in 2030, 76 percent in 2031, 82 percent in 2032, 88 percent in 2033 and 94 percent in 2034.
Californians still would be allowed to own vehicles with internal combustion engines and resell them.
Last month, six major automakers and 30 countries committed to phase out new gasoline-powered and diesel-powered vehicles by 2040 worldwide and by 2035 in “leading markets.” The automakers include Ford, General Motors, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, China’s BYD and Jaguar Land Rover.
