California blacklists GM, Toyota and other car makers opposing clean car rules | The Driven

The state of California has announced that it will no longer purchase cars from car makers that support president Trump’s opposition to clean car and clean air laws.

Under the new ruling, Californian agencies will stop buying petrol and diesel-powered vehicles effective immediately, and from January 2020 it will not buy any vehicles from car makers that have sided with the Trump administration’s efforts to freeze clean car rules and strip California of its right to set its own rules.

California’s move to ban purchases from automakers including General Motors, Toyota and others is in line with an executive order issued by California governor Gavin Newsom to reduce tailpipe emissions as part of its climate action plan.
