New York state to adopt California 2035 EV rules

Source: Reuters

Sept 29 (Reuters) - New York state plans to adopt California's rules approved in August that would require all new vehicles sold in the state by 2035 to be either electric or plug-in electric hybrids, Governor Kathy Hochul said on Thursday.

Hochul said in a statement that she has directed a state environmental agency to propose and finalize rules adopting California's plan setting yearly rising zero-emission vehicle rules starting in 2026 that phases out gasoline-only new car sales by 2035.

The agency will hold a public hearing before the rules are finalized.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) adopted its rules after Governor Gavin Newsom issued a 2020 executive order directing the move. CARB said the rules will reduce smog-causing pollution from light-duty vehicles by 25% by 2037 and result in 9.5 million fewer conventional vehicles sold by 2035.

1. Legislation on this was passed in 2021 and signed

into law by Cuomo.

It appears to be almost identical to California. Maybe there is something very technical in the change to make it align with California’s regs.

3. Some clarification

“New York’s push for an emissions-free transportation system took a step forward Thursday when Gov. Kathy Hochul said the state Department of Environmental Conservation would expedite the regulations behind a mandate, signed by the governor last year, that all new cars sold starting in 2035 be emissions-free.”

Snip

“New York has patterned its emission rules on those of California. There are requirements in the 1970 Clean Air Act that California set emission standards which serve as a pattern for other states.”
