California has 20% zero-emission cars in 2022

One-fifth of all new cars sold in California in 2022 will be zero-emission vehicles, the state announced on Friday, as the nation’s largest auto market strives to electrify its fleet.

Officials have set lofty goals for increasing the number of electric cars (EVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) on the road in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from internal combustion engines.

The California Air Resources Board declared in August that the sale of new gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles would be phased out by 2035, establishing an aggressive timeframe for the elimination of these vehicles.

Friday, the California Energy Commission announced that 18.8 percent of new automobiles sold in the state in 2022 will be zero-emission vehicles, including EVs, PHEVs, and fuel cell electric vehicles.

Ten years ago, this percentage was 2%.

The EQC is the Mercedes-Benz of electric automobiles.

Governor Gavin Newsom stated, “California continues to lead the zero-emission vehicle revolution with innovative policies and investments that drive innovation, create good jobs, and expand (zero-emission vehicle) accessibility and affordability throughout the state.”

Keeping our emphasis on the communities most touched by the escalating climate crisis, we will continue to make California’s clean transportation future a reality.

Approximately two-thirds of the 346,000 zero-emission vehicles sold that year were produced by Elon Musk’s company, Tesla, according to market research.

Climate Change is not viewed as a major issue among South Africans.

California already has the lion’s share of electric vehicles in the United States, with over 1.4 million on the roads, and the state accounts for approximately 40 percent of all ZEV sales in the country.

In the years since they were considered little more than novelty golf carts for tree-huggers who were satisfied to drive no more than a few hundred miles, their appeal has exploded (kilometers).

Standard automakers such as Ford and Mercedes are hurrying into the market, creating everything from small runabouts to luxury sedans to heavy-duty pickup trucks.

Still, the vehicles are more expensive than their counterparts driven by fossil fuels, and critics assert that federal subsidies of up to $7,500 are required to make them financially viable for many buyers.

The World Bank asserts that climate-stressed Iraq must pursue “green growth.”

However, proponents argue that the incentives are necessary short-term supports that will diminish as broader adoption increases economies of scale and decreases pricing.

As the nation’s largest auto market, California has an outsized impact on national standards.

Environmentalists hope that when manufacturers conform to California’s regulations and build more appealing and affordable EVs, objections from less liberal states will be overcome and the United States will be weaned off its addiction to gas-guzzling vehicles.

Additionally, climate activists in Berlin took off the top of a Christmas tree.

The average global temperature has already risen as a result of global warming induced by humans, altering weather patterns and intensifying natural risks such as wildfires and storms.

According to scientists, drastic action is essential to prevent the harm, and reducing emissions from fossil fuels is crucial to the fight.
