Governor Newsom announces ban on sales of gas powered vehicles starting in 2035

Earlier today California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an executive order that will put a moratorium on the sale of gas powered cars and trucks in the state beginning in 2035. The ban would not prohibit owning gas powered vehicles or purchasing them out of state.

Newsom spoke on a live streamed video to make the announcement

The Governor’s office issued a statement on the new order.

“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” said Governor Newsom. “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. Californians shouldn’t have to worry if our cars are giving our kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse – and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”
