The state government claims that this legislation will drive the state's transition to clean transportation forward and benefit the climate and health of the communities for generations to come. The new regulations are claimed to come with new pollution rules for passenger cars, light duty trucks and medium duty vehicles with an internal combustion engine. The new pollution guideline will be effective in 2026 and continue through 2034. The state government also claims that these regulations give automakers flexibility during the transition to ZEVs.

Earlier this year, the California government also passed legislation aiming for 35 per cent of new vehicle sales to be electric by 2026. California's proposal also sets rules for 2028, which calls for EVs to account for 51 per cent of sales.

The proposal comes as part of its broader plan to meet the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 85 per cent by 2050. The state also made $5.75 million available to local governing bodies to help facilitate the purchase or lease of EVs and to install public EV chargers.
