The California government has set a deadline of 2035 for new conventional cars last September. He has done so much harder than many countries in the world – from 2035, new passenger cars will only be allowed to sell 100% in California without local emissions, so hybrids and plug hybrids will not pass. After ten years, the ban will be extended to commercial vehicles, including most heavy vehicles.
California senators Diane Feinstein and Alex Patila sent a letter to the president urging him to put an end to 2035 for internal combustion engines in passenger cars, according to Reuters; It is said that it is not written about commercial vehicles.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. But we can speculate that they are more in favor of them than former President Trump, who is known among others for easing the emission rules.
Biden’s old words refer to this: “The federal government has a large number of vehicles that will replace clean, electric cars made in the United States by American workers,” he told a news conference.
However, if the president listens to the senators’ wishes, the United States will be far from the first with such a plan. Today, they are the last island of freedom for fans of bulky internal combustion engines.
