A few European countries plus the Republic of China have already committed to banning the sales of gas cars in about 10 to 20 years. It seems like a long time from now but if you think about it, it really isn’t. Only 5 years ago electric cars were considered a joke until Tesla Model S has made its debut and made a statement that electric cars can be not only as good as gas cars but actually they can be much better.
The trend is coming to the United Stated. California will have a new bill introduced by the assembly member Phil Tang that will ban the sales of gas cars in California by 2040. Phil Tang was an author of another bill that attempted to increase the electric car buyer rebates in the state but never made it to the vote before the end of the last session.
It is exciting and scary to know how fast the electric car revolution has spread and how fast it has endangered the old school industry of big gas and oil.
