The state is also focused on electrifying transportation. The Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap calls for emissions from light-duty transportation to be reduced to nearly zero by 2050. The primary strategy to reduce light-duty transportation emissions is switching from fossil-fueled vehicles to zero emissions vehicles.
And, "An Act driving clean energy and offshore wind," signed by the governor in August, 2022, will require all new cars sold in Massachusetts to be electric by 2035. The Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2030 sets a goal of increasing the number of electric vehicles on the roads to 750,000 by 2035, when all new “light-duty” vehicles, or passenger cars, sold will be mandated to be zero-emissions, meaning either electric or hydrogen fuel-cell cars, which also run on electricity.
