New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation that effectively bans the sale of new internal combustion engine cars, off-road vehicles, light-duty trucks and equipment by 2035.
Hochul says new off-road vehicles and equipment sold in New York are to be zero-emissions by 2035, and new medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles by 2045. This is a step forward to save the environment.
New York City said that to meet its climate goals it would need 400,000 of the city's 2 million vehicle owners to switch to EVs by 2030. The city vows to install a network of 10,000 curbside charge points by 2030.
New York is following California's earlier efforts to shift drivers into zero-emission vehicles. California governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order in September 2020 that would phase out all sales of new internal combustion engine vehicles in the state by 2035.Use promocode VALENTINA5 to get a 5% discount on GetRentacar.com
