CLEAN CARS 2030 GAINS TRACTION IN KEY STATES
California recently adopted the Advanced Clean Cars II (ACC II) program, which cuts climate and air pollution by requiring that an increasing percentage of all new cars sold are electric, culminating in a 100% EV requirement by 2035.
Clean Cars 2030 legislation, passed in Washington State earlier this year, aims to achieve the ACC II goals five years earlier, with 100% new cars being electric by 2030. It complements ACC II by providing an all-of-government planning process to achieve 100% electrification, and provides a backstop to ACC II in the event of political or legal setbacks. Governor Inslee’s office recently told The Seattle Times, “We think of the California regulation as the floor and we’ve set a new ceiling of trying to get that done by 2030.”
Coltura’s polling indicates that a majority of Americans support Clean Cars 2030. Thanks to the advocacy of our partners, the Clean Cars 2030 approach is gaining traction in a number of states.
