In California, a program to switch to electric cars was adopted

California is on a path to phasing out gasoline-powered cars.

The California Air Resources Board has approved a policy that is the toughest order of transition to electric vehicles.

It is not about banning gasoline-powered cars or selling used cars of this kind.

But the new rules do require that by 2035, all new passenger cars, trucks and SUVs sold in the state must be electric or hydrogen-powered.

A fifth of those are allowed to be plug-in hybrids.

The transition will require increasing the number of charging stations in the state by 15 times and increasing the reliability of the power grid.
