New York, following the green trail of California, last month adopted several measures to speed up the state’s adoption of electric vehicles (EV) and zero-emissions vehicles (ZEV). 

Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) urged the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to issue regulations that would require all new passenger cars and trucks sold in the state be ZEVs by 2035. The move is built on the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Advanced Clean Cars II regulations banning the sale of internal combustion engines, enshrined into law last month. 

“In New York, every week is climate week,” Hochul said at the state’s National Drive Electric Week celebration. “Electric vehicles are the keys to achieving” the state’s climate goals.
