California Bans New ICE Cars

California's Air Resource Board has issued a new rule banning the sale of new ICE vehicles in the state by 2035. The new standards come with interim targets such as 35% zero-emission vehicle sales by 2026, 68% by 2030, and so on until 2035. With many states following California's standards, this change is expected to lead to a quicker transition toward electric vehicles.

It's kind of a big deal. California, the largest auto market in the US, guides more than a dozen other states' auto emission standards. The decision follows last week's expansion of climate-related laws and will make a major difference in efforts to reduce carbon emissions by 40% before 2030.
