New York ban on gas vehicle sales from 2035

Governor Kathy Hochul has signed a bill into law that effectively forbids the sale of new internal combustion engines vehicles by 2035. In other words, passenger vehicles sold in New York after the year 2035. will be all-electric. And by 2045, the state is aiming for the “zero-emission” truck category.

With this, the state also requested a zero-emissions vehicle development strategy by 2023. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will handle the strategic part, leading with policies and programs necessary. Per The New York Department of Environmental Conservation, a zero-emission vehicle is one of the following: a battery-electric vehicle, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or a hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle.

If this New York legislation looks familiar, it is because earlier this year, California had a similar situation. Namely, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation, which also bans the sale of new gas-powered passenger cars and trucks starting in 2035.

In addition to persuading people to buy electric vehicles over the next 14 years, New York will need to build a large charging network across the state. This includes putting charging stations in places like homes, supermarkets, shopping malls, and parking lots. We expect Volkswagen’s Electrify America to help with this. As of right now, there are over 7000 public chargers registered in the state of New York.
