CA 2035 Ban on New Gas Fueled Cars
CA's Boost to Electric Vehicles Along With 15 Nations
VW Unveils New Electric SUV
In California by 2035, new, gasoline powered cars will not be allowed to be sold. California Governor Gavin Newsome just signed an executive order to that effect. At least one major Detroit automaker is cheering the move. Ford says it is proud to stand by California. Ford is in the process of electrifying its biggest brands including the F-150 pickup truck and the iconic Mustang Mach E.
Meanwhile, Volkswagen has just unveiled a new, all-electric SUV for the US market. The ID4 is priced just under $40,000 and has a range on a single charge of 250 miles. Governor Newsome's order coincides with that of 15 nations that have similar goals of banning gas powered cars and supporting clean, green travel vehicles. It demonstrates that government regulations and the heavy financial investments that global automakers have put into the development of electric vehicles are starting to come together and work.
