New Lobbying Group To Push For 100 Percent EV Sales By 2030
A new lobbying group was formed last week to advocate for 100 percent electric vehicle sales by 2030.
Made up of groups that include Tesla, Uber, ChargePoint, Piedmont Lithium, Con Edison, Pacific Gas and Electric, Duke Energy and Vistra, the new group, known as The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA), plans to immediately push to extend and expand EV tax credits and include point-of-sale consumer incentives to buy EVs.
The group wants “to be relevant” right away to move their agenda as fast as possible, although their efforts face an uphill battle in a likely Republican-controlled Senate and a slim Democrat House majority next year.

Meanwhile, Quebec announced on Monday that it plans to join California’s efforts to place a ban on new sales of internal combustion engines (ICE) by 2035. Reports indicate that the United Kingdom will soon announce a ban on sales of new ICE cars by 2030.
