Washington state announced that it would not allow new gasoline-powered vehicles to be sold not too far. After this date, only electric vehicles will be used in the state!
There’s a growing interest in electric vehicles in America. While California and Massachusetts banned gasoline car sales in 2035, a bolder decision came from Washington state. The state will not allow the sale of gasoline vehicles in 2030, including vehicles purchased and imported in other states.
But that decision will come into effect if the state approves a mileage tax to fund transportation infrastructure. Governor Jay Inslee has not yet signed the bill.
The decision could be problematic for some car brands. Ford, Mini, Volvo, and some other car brands will offer electric options for most or all of their series by 2030, but GM, for example, has no plans to switch to electricity by 2035.
