Diesel trucks have finally been given a deadline: pack up your things and make your way out of California for 2036 is going to be a year of reckoning. For the longest time internal combustion engines have been long looked down upon because of their harmful effects for the environment, their expenses skyrocketing for gasoline, the lack of sleep Ness they have compared to their electric vehicle cousins and the very fact that those type of commercial vehicles are just becoming too obsolete to maintain. In the tradition of America, California has long been the front runner of new ideas and innovations that would inevitably sprinkle over the rest of these United States. Which is why it comes with a little surprise that starting in 2036 the California air resources board has taken a step with state government to ban sales of new diesel heavy duty and medium duty trucks at the start of 2036 and moving forward.
Why did they come to this conclusion now?
With the rise of such electric vehicle companies like Tesla, Daimler-Mercedes electric sector and even Hyliion, it seems like the days for diesels are numbered. Or rather the very idea of that diesel emissions have a welcome place to stay in the clean air of the Golden state. Even drayage isn’t safe from this deadline.
According to the California Air Resources Board, or CARB, a new rule by the name of the advanced clean fleets was approved last Friday unanimously from the 1.8 million medium and heavy duty trucks are currently operating on the highways and freeways of America’s roadways, 532,000 of those trucks will soon be subject to the guidelines listed out by the ACF.
This worries Europe.
Surprisingly, Europe is typically more advanced than the bicoastal cities of Uncle Sam’s land way more often. Especially when it comes to ecological efforts found in their modes of transport. But as it turns out, the EU organization behind commercial vehicles is slacking and now scrambling to keep up with the USA is very own policy on banning diesel truck sales in 2036. 2035 basically Hass to be the year Europe hits to beat out banning electric vehicles and commercial transportation, with a penis to be more alert and ready by 2030. It doesn’t help either that 35% of all America’s commercial vehicles come from just California alone.
Diesel trucks are out. Electric trucks are in. And the jury is still undecided on driverless bobtails. But that may be a story for later on, once this Civil War ended.
