NY, Calif., 8 States Vow 3.3M Zero-emission Vehicles by 2025

Thursday, 24 Oct 2013 12:18 PM

The governors of eight states including California and New York are pledging to work together to get 3.3 million zero-emission vehicles on roadways by 2025 in an effort to curb greenhouse gas pollution from transportation sources.

Representatives from all eight states were in Sacramento on Thursday to sign a memorandum of understanding that would increase infrastructure and make other changes to help increase market share for electric cars, hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.

The other states involved are Massachusetts, Maryland, Oregon, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont. The eight states together represent about 23 percent of the U.S. auto market.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the agreement "a major step forward to reducing the emissions that are causing our climate to change."
