California intends to ban gasoline vehicles from its roads starting in 2040 according to the American publication Bloomberg. Only electric or hydrogen vehicles that emit no polluting emissions will be allowed on California roads.
The project will be tabled in January by Phil Ting, a state democrat who believes that the delay leaves enough time for the development of electric motor vehicles to meet the requirements of the state.
Other countries like China, France and England have already developed similar plans, but if the project moves to California it would be the first US state to take such drastic measures.
As for Quebec, the zero emission law adopted in 2016 will require 3.5% of the vehicles sold by the various manufacturers to be electric by next year.
