Gasoline Car Sales Outlawed by State Governor Starting in 2035

The climate crisis has been named as the inspiration for the move.

Car culture is a culture like no other.  It begs mankind to use their wit and whimsy to create ever more powerful and efficient machines with which to test our mortal limits of speed and style.

This is a world ingrained within our world, where we spend inordinate amounts of time and money to express ourselves via the shell around us.  And, like all good American pastimes, we remember the first time we really, truly fell in love with a vehicle.

And, as we grow older, there is a palpable nostalgia for the cars of the past.  The analog gauges.  The real leather seats.  The smell of the exhaust of a big engine running hot.

California will phase out the sale of all gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 in a bid to lead the U.S. in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging the state’s drivers to switch to electric cars.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Wednesday that amounts to the most aggressive clean-car policy in the United States. Although it bans the sale of new gas cars and trucks after the 15-year deadline, it will still allow such vehicles to be owned and sold on the used-car market.

“This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” the governor said in a statement.

“Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse — and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines.”

And, despite California’s eco-friendly slant, less than 8% of the cars sold in the state in 2019 were electric.
