Over 600,000 electric cars have been sold in California since we set zero-emission vehicle standards. It’s time for CARB to do the same for trucks.
The California Air Resources Board is considering an electric trucks rule that would require 20% of heavy duty trucks sold in California to be zero-emissions by 2030. But that rule would lead to just 4% of heavy duty trucks on-road in 2030 being zero-emission .
It’s not too late to strengthen the electric truck standard. We’re calling for CARB to set a more stringent rule. We’re also calling for the rule to apply to all trucks, including pickup trucks, starting in 2024.
