California has announced a new plan to make all of its autonomous vehicles zero-emission, which is expected to happen in 2030. That means government officials will try to keep traditional and hybrid cars off state roads. .

This detail was confirmed by California Gov. Gavin Newscom on Thursday, September 23, after signing a new bill. The latest law approved, sponsored by various environmental groups, states that all models of self-driving gasoline and hybrid cars should no longer work.
Right now, various parts of the United States are working to get residents to use zero-emission vehicles as carbon emissions increase in different countries. Now California is joining them as Newsom confirms its latest ruling against the sale and production of gasoline-powered automobiles.
California to Make ALL Self-Driving Cars Zero Emissions
According to The Verge’s latest report, Governor Gavin has already announced his two decrees for clean energy cars in 2020. The first states that all cars sold by 2035 should be zero emissions.

An electrical cable is attached to the side of a Chevrolet Volt vehicle during a tour on Capitol Hill July 19, 2007 in Washington, DC. The Volt is a plug-in electric vehicle that will travel its first 40 miles without using gasoline, then the battery will be recharged by a small internal combustion engine that runs on gasoline, diesel or ethanol if needed.

The other bill explained that all commercial vans and trucks sold and manufactured in California should also run on clean energy. This is quite a surprising initiative since it makes California the first US state to stop sales of fossil fuel cars.
Thanks to the efforts of government officials, 15 more states have already followed California’s plan by issuing similar bills to make their own racing vehicles zero-emissions.
In other news, the United States would soon see autonomous FedEx trucks roaming the streets. On the other hand, environmentalists want to boycott Toyota, claiming the automaker is preventing the development of electric vehicles.
Michigan also announces electric vehicle project
California isn’t the only state keen to help the rising electric vehicle industry. Michigan also announced plans to build a highway that would automatically charge visiting electric vehicles.
It would be a great innovation once completed since electric cars would no longer need to stop just to turn on.
“Michigan was home to the first mile of paved road, and now we’re paving the way for the roads of tomorrow with innovative infrastructure that will support the economy and the environment,” Governor Whitmer said via the Convenience report.
