New York bans the sale of gas-powered cars
The New York government plans to ban the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035. This would happen through two phases: 35% by 2026, and 60% by 2030. Additionally, all new New York school buses must be zero emission cars by 2035.
The Golden State was the first state to vote for a ban on the sale of cars powered by gas. Although the Clean Air Act does not allow California to create new guidelines, other states can follow suit once they act.
The coastal regions of the U.S. help determine how much emissions will be limited – even though each state is responsible for implementing the regulations themselves. New York has announced a $10 million program to give residents up to $2,000 for EV and hybrid cars.
There will be a set of pollution standards and 100 fast chargers as part of the EVolve charging network. Cars that use gas will be banned by 2040, and there will be different pollution standards for cars from model year 2026 to 2034.
But then there are the hybrid cars, like the plug-in hybrids. They can run on gasoline, but only for short distances. And if they run out of battery power, they’re polluting too.
