Eight states are planning to promote electric car ownership by making it cheaper and easier with perks such as, more charging stations, carpool lane access, cheaper tolls and free parking. California and east coast states are working together to put more Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) on the road to the tune of 3.3 million by 2025.
The eight-state coalition includes California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont which make up about a quarter of U.S. new car sales. The coalition announced an action plan, last week, called the “Multi-State ZEV Action Plan“.
