California Can Be A Global Leader
California is the 6th largest economy in the world. Our vehicles have a significant impact on the global climate. By eliminating the sale of new gas- and diesel-fueled passenger cars by 2040, California would be joining these other countries:
AB 1745 Puts California
on the Road to a
Zero Emissions Future!
Governor Brown set a goal for California to have 1.5 million zero emissions vehicles on the road by 2025, and our state's climate change prevention policies project the need for 5 million zero emissions vehicles by 2030. Introduced by Assemblymember Phil Ting, AB 1745, the Clean Cars 2040 Act, will set the next critical goal for California by requiring all new passenger vehicles sold after January 1, 2040 to be zero emissions.
"California has long led the nation in promoting environmental protection and public health through visionary policies and technological innovations," said Assemblymember Ting (D-San Francisco), and author of the legislation. "It's time that we clear the path for emissions-free transportation and take significant steps to achieve our ambitious emissions reduction goals. AB 1745 does just that by requiring that all new cars registered in the State of California -after January 1, 2040 - be zero emissions vehicles. We're at an inflection point: we've got to address the harmful emissions that cause climate change. Achieving the goal of electrification of transportation is crucial for the health of our people and the planet. Vehicles run on fossil fuels are responsible for nearly 40 percent of California's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By spurring the use of zero emissions vehicles, we're creating a mechanism to ensure a healthier future for Californians, and the entire region."
As introduced, AB 1745 requires all new passenger vehicles to be zero emissions vehicles after January 1, 2040. For the purposes of the bill, zero emissions vehicles cannot produce exhaust emissions of any criteria pollutant or greenhouse gas under any operational mode or condition. The bill does not apply to large commercial vehicles (larger than 10,000 pounds) and does not apply to vehicles owned by people moving into California from other states.California has set ambitious goals to reduce GHG emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. There are nearly 300,000 EVs on California roads today. In 2016, approximately 2.09 million new cars were sold in California, and 1.9 percent were EVs. Over 20 EVs are now on the market in subcompact, hatchback, sedan, luxury, and SUV/minivan models.
