California phasing out diesel trucks beginning 2024

“applies to a wide range of trucks including box trucks, semitrailers and even large passenger pick-ups.”

“The new truck standards are aimed at companies that make trucks and those that own large quantities of them. Companies owning 50 or more trucks will have to report information to the state about how they use these trucks to ship goods and provide shuttle services. Manufacturers will have to sell a higher percentage of zero-emission vehicles starting in 2024. Depending on the class of truck, zero-emission ones will have to make up 40% to 75% of sales by 2035.”


California needs to do this because of the horrendous air pollution problems in many areas of the state.
