According to new reports, Los Angeles now may force Uber and Lyft to use all-electric vehicles. The LA-based clean technology leaders announced their Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 2.0 in November this year. At the time, Mayor Eric Garcetti called for a 25% reduction in air pollution by 2028.
The Mayor also said that the authorities have the power to regulate car share. They can mandate and are looking closely at mandating that any of those vehicles in the future be electric. LA’s 2028 green plan includes purchasing more electric buses and EVs for the city’s municipal fleet. Electric Vehicles would account for 30% of all light-duty passenger vehicles on the road and at least 80% of all vehicles sold. The city may end up deploying America’s first electric fire engine.
