Legislation introduced in the California Assembly would require a transition to fully electric vehicles in the state by the year 2040. AB 1745, put forth by Assembly-member Phil Ting, would prohibit the Department of Motor Vehicles from accepting registration for new vehicles unless they meet the state’s “Zero Emission Vehicle” standard.

An exemption has been made for vehicles weighing more than 10,000 lbs. and certain vehicles brought in from out of state. However, the current bill does not allow for any other exemptions for collector or hobbyist vehicles. The bill has not yet been assigned to a committee for debate and discussion.
