The end of the Gas-Powered Cars is on New York’s 2035 Zero-emission Passenger Car Agenda

Governor of New York City, Kathy Hochul signed a proposal that says, by the year 2035, all light-duty and passenger vehicles will be zero-emission, joining California, USA, in striving to stamp out gasoline-powered cars

The law centered on setting regulations requiring increased numbers of zero-emission cars with an ultimate goal of “100% of in-state sales by 2035,” and the same is the goal set for medium and heavy-duty cars by the year 2045.

The US government is trying to find ways to boost the sales of electric cars to slow down the environmental damage humans are causing and reduce the overall wastage of fossil fuels and meet the global goals for environmental protection.

In August 2021, US President Biden stepped up towards his objective to slash greenhouse gas emissions with a directive order. The goal is to make 50 percent of all the car purchases made by 2030 electric. The top US carmakers are supporting the goal. 

Despite the pressure coming from Congress’ Democrats, Biden has been consistently denying to endorse the proposal to get rid of all the new gas-powered vehicles by the year 2035. 

The previous year, Gavin Newsome, the Governor of California, endorsed an executive bill that aimed to ban the dealing of all the brand new gas-powered passenger cars, beginning in 2035.

Newson said, This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change, “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. You deserve to have a car that doesn’t give your kids asthma… Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines

In April, ten states, including California and New York, asked the president to lay down a set of standards to ensure that all the light-duty and passenger vehicles are 0 emissions by 2035. 

On Wednesday, New York City government stated that the country would need 400,000 vehicles out of 2 Million total vehicles to switch to Electric vehicles by the end of 2030. The city promises that It will install 10,000 charging points around the country by 2035. 

It further added, the city is proposing laws needing a high percentage of all new large and medium trucks to be sold and zero-emission starting with the model year 2025. 

On Wednesday, legislation was signed requiring every off-road car to be 0 emission model by 2035.
