The electric vehicle revolution is in high gear. Not only are electric motorcycles included in this, but they are also an important part of the story. Los Angeles has an exciting new plan for electric vehicles. The new Zero Emissions Roadmap 2.0 was created by the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator.
There are a lot of points on the road map, but perhaps the most important point to note is that the program calls for 80% of all new vehicles sold in the area to be electric by 2028. It might seem a bit away, but eight years is really not that far away. The California Air Resources Board and Mayor Eric Garcetti are backing the campaign too.
The program lays out the steps that need to be taken and the goals to be reached if the target is to be accomplished. The reason that the proposal is targeting 2028 instead of 2030 is that Los Angeles will host the Olympics and Paralympics that year. If you want to read the full roadmap and see all the steps, milestones, and improvements that need to be made, you can do so here.
These are big targets. Hopefully, automakers and motorcycle manufacturers will work extremely fast to make bikes that people would be happy with. We think the charging station network is what’s going to be really important.
