8 states are planning to BAN the sale of gas-powered cars entirely – after Biden unveiled ambitious plans to phase them out by 2032

  • California was the first state to adopt the plan to ban sales of gas cars by 2035
  • Electric vehicles made up 7.6 percent of new car sales in the US last year

At least eight states are planning to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars in the next decade – and others are considering joining them. 

Only zero-emission vehicles can be sold in participating states beginning from the 2035 model year, according to the Advanced Clean Cars II legislation. 

The rule, which was first adopted by California, means that automakers and dealerships would be banned from selling new gas cars in these states from that point onwards. 

Americans will not be forced to take their gas-powered cars off the road, however, and will still be able to buy used and secondhand gas vehicles.

These states have gone further than the latest federal legislation announced last week, where the Biden administration released new rules to gradually phase out gas cars by 2032.

The new federal legislation requires automakers to reduce the tailpipe emissions of new vehicles by around 50 percent from model year 2026 to 2032. 

In order to achieve this, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is targeting 35 percent to 56 percent of vehicles needing to be EVs by 2032, and 13 percent to 36 percent needing to be plug-in hybrids by that date. 

It was initially proposed that two thirds of all cars sold by 2030 would need to be EVs, but the brakes were put on that plan last week, giving a concession to carmakers and giving them more ways to comply. 

But carmakers will eventually stop making full gas-powered successors to the beloved muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s under Biden’s new edict. 

For the time being though, Dodge announced earlier this month that the 2024 Charger will be available as a gas-powered muscle car as well as a new all-electric vehicle.

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask! https://Socialnetworkadsinfo.com/story18969073/ecotur%C3%ADstico-en-la-regi%C3%B3n-de-san-ignacio-kuyim%C3%A1

  2. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks https://hypebookmarking.com/story16741576/servicios-de-transporte-terrestre-en-bogot%C3%A1-vanspremium

  3. Hey! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours require a massive
    amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and
    feelings online. Please let me know if you have
    any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it! http://miquelduran.net/index.php?title=Usuari:RodrickWray7

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty
    five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone! https://Wikiromandie.org/index.php?title=Avocat_Par_Aide_Juridique_%C3%83_Drummondville_:_Prot%C3%83_gez_Vos_Droits_Avec_Expertise

  6. With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways
    to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d
    genuinely appreciate it.

  7. Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find
    a theme or plugin that might be able to fix
    this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Cheers! https://Online-Learning-Initiative.org/wiki/index.php/D%C3%83_veloppement_De_Site_Web_:_Les_Cl%C3%83_s_Du_Succ%C3%83%C2%A8s_En_Ligne

  10. I truly admired the work you’ve put in here. The design is refined, your authored material stylish, however, you seem to have acquired some trepidation about what you intend to present next. Undoubtedly, I’ll revisit more regularly, similar to I have nearly all the time, in the event you sustain this rise.
