California is Poised to Phase Out Sales of New Gas-Powered Cars

California is the biggest auto market in a country where transportation is the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Its policies also influence other states.

  • California is poised to set a 2035 deadline for all new cars, trucks and SUVs sold in the state to be powered by electricity or hydrogen, an ambitious step that will reshape the U.S. car market by speeding the transition to more climate-friendly vehicles.

  • People can continue driving gas-fueled vehicles and purchasing used ones after 2035. The plan also allows for one-fifth of sales after 2035 to be plug-in hybrids that can run on batteries and gas.
