Kathy Hochul recently took over as governor of New York State, and has already signed a bill banning the sale of new vehicles with internal combustion engines from 2035.
Under the new bill, all passenger cars and light commercial vehicles sold in New York must have zero emissions from 2035, and the same goes for trucks from 2045.
The New York Department of Environmental Conservation defines zero-emission vehicles as battery-powered electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).
The proposal of the new law was presented by the New York senator Pete Harckham, and the goal of this legal provision is to reduce the total greenhouse gas emissions by 85% by 2050 in New York.
A similar decision was made by the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, and the authorities of the Sonoma district in California went even further, banning the construction of new gas stations.
These bills are in line with the US president’s goal of electric vehicles accounting for 50% of total market share. in the US by 2030.
