On September 23, 2020 California Gov. Gavin Newsome announced he wants to ban the sale of gas cars. This order could impact us humans and help our environment. California would be the first state to do this kind of action in the United States. In 2035, all cars being manufactured would be electrical vehicles, while gas cars would still be sold in the used car markets. Newsome’s plan also involves heavy machinery to be zero emission by 2045.

Newsome wants to fight against global warming and help prevent more disastrous wildfires. “This is the most impactful step our state can take to fight climate change,” said Governor Newsom in an announcement. California would be following British, France, Norway and other countries to bring down carbon monoxide emissions and other harmful chemicals. California could see a decrease in air pollution and wildfire which could benefit the health of future kids. To make this happen more people would be required which can create more jobs.

In the United State it is estimated that there are only 20,000 charging outlets statewide. This could delay Newsome order by providing charging outlets everywhere for the public. “Last year, only 8 percent of the nearly two million passenger vehicles sold statewide were battery-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles” (Brad plumber and Jill Cowan). One downside of his plan is the battery capability and how long it takes for a vehicle to be fully charged. “A popular SUV model, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can connect to a 43-50 kWh charger and finish in 40 minutes” (Car and Driver Research). This could change someone’s perspective on owning an electric car due to how much miles they drive during the week or on a singular day.

California would have to make sure that these new cars would be affordable for everyone and find the resources to make this happen. With this order it would impact people for the good or bad when owning an electric car. This can impact the environment to see if it would help prevent more fires or have less pollution in the air. This order can lead California on a new path set.
