Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has outlined a $2.5 billion plan to help Californians
buy electric vehicles and expand a network of charging stations as part of a
goal of getting 5 million zero-emission cars on the road by 2030.
The ambitious proposal to transform California’s car culture comes as Brown
begins his final year in office and works to set the stage for his
environmental legacy to continue under his successor.

of selling 1.5 million such vehicles by 2025. It’s a nearly 15-fold increase
over the 350,000 zero-emission vehicles already on California’s roads. The
$2.5 billion in spending still needs legislative approval.
Reaching the goal will require that 40 percent of vehicles sold in 2030 be
clean, said Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board,
up from about 5 percent now.
