EPA Says Two-Thirds of New Cars Should be EV by 2032

Proposed pollution standards call for zero emissions. 

A new rule being proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency would mandate that 67 percent of new passenger vehicle sales in 2032 must have zero emissions. At the same time, they have introduced increased pollution standards for gasoline-powered cars. 

The rule furthers President Biden’s goal of having 50 percent zero-emission passenger car sales by 2030. That would include battery-powered electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, and fuel-cell ones as well. It could increase EV sales by dramatic numbers. Last year just 5 percent of new car sales were EVs. 

EPA Administrator Michael Regan said, “By proposing the most ambitious pollution standards ever for cars and trucks, we are delivering on the Biden-Harris administration’s promise to protect people and the planet, securing critical reductions in dangerous air and climate pollution and ensuring significant economic benefits like lower fuel and maintenance costs for families.” 

It is not likely that the EPA rule would be adopted before next summer. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Regan as he implements rules to meet the president’s goals for carbon emissions.
  • That the president and his administration would seek God’s direction regarding environmental stewardship.
