We advance policies to cut gasoline use at speed and scale
Scientists have issued a clear warning: to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must cut emissions 50% by 2030, and 100% by 2050. Coltura works to achieve these targets for emissions from light duty vehicles – our cars, trucks and SUVs.

High gasoline prices are placing an extreme burden on lower income families driving many miles in older, more polluting vehicles. California Assemblymember Phil Ting sponsored AB 2816 to help get these families into electric vehicles and cut their fuel costs, and for cleaner air and a healthier planet for all.

In a critical step toward meeting vehicle emissions reduction goals, today, California adopted the Advanced Clean Cars II program (ACC II), a common-sense approach to cutting climate and air pollution by requiring that all new cars sold in 2035 and beyond are zero-emission vehicles. It sets enforceable standards for the rate at which automakers must convert their offerings to electric and provides certainty for other EV market players concerning the timing of electrification.

Coltura’s work in Washington State has paid off! On March 25, 2022, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed into law a bill setting a date of 2030 for all new cars registered in the state to be electric. The measure, known as Clean Cars 2030, sets the most aggressive state target in the U.S. for the phaseout of gasoline cars – a full five years ahead of California's 2035 deadline – and establishes an interagency council tasked with creating a plan for achieving the 2030 target. Coltura led the effort to get this bill introduced and led the coalition that helped pass it.

Cities must lead and model the transition from fossil fuels. Electrifying public vehicles is a top priority. With their predictable use patterns, dedicated lots for charging and ability to be branded as clean electric vehicles, city fleets are prime candidates for electrification and taxpayer savings and education. Suitable light duty EVs are already here, and other city vehicles such as work trucks, garbage trucks and transit vehicles are close behind.
