California votes to ban new gas car sales by 2035

California Air Resources Board (CAIB) regulators voted Thursday August 25 2022 to ban new gas car sales by 2035. The measure to phase gasoline cars out of the state is a historic one in the US and would be one of the first such bans worldwide. The move has major implications for the US car market, as several states are expected to implement similar rules in the years to come, experts say. California's new rules would also set interim quotas for zero-emission vehicles. Starting with 2026 models, 35% of new cars, SUVs and small pickups sold in the state would be required to be zero-emission vehicles. That quota would increase each year, reaching 100% by 2035. On the other hand, the new rules would not impact used vehicles, allowing them to stay on the roads. Click to read the Press Release from CAIB. By the way, in the "News" section there are other interesting articles, such as the commitment that Uber and Lyft have made to transition to zero-emission vehicles by 2030.
