4:01 pm
the trends are in the direction globally in zero emission vehicles. >> reporter: the governor would like the phase out the sale of new gas powered cars by 2035, to reduce the state's emissions. he's driving this change forward with the help of california's air resources board. >> we know we have an obligation to keep on working to clean up the air and to make it as clean as it can be. he said it is for other states to follow. already the state has 34 electric vehicle manufacturers. >> the difference is with a zero emission vehicle, you have lower maintenance costs, lower operating costs. if you want to protect impoverished communities, then pull away from the gas pumps. >> reporter: the california new car dealers association released this statement. bypassing the elected legislature and directing the california air resources board
4:02 pm
to adopt rules to prohibit the sale of nonzero emission vehicles to enact the significant transportation policy change is deeply troubling and deprives californians of a direct voice in this important issue. drivers feel there are pros and connells. >> if there are long material benefits, that's fine. i drive a stick shift. >> the prices of electric cars aren't down. it will be extremely hard for people to have car ownership. >> the governor says people can still buy or sell their gas powered vehicles. >> joining us now, professor, thank you. let's assume this is doable. what would this mean for california's infrastructure? at a minimum would you need a lot xhoorncharging stations tha

have now. >> it is doable and it is easy to install. we see going into homes, some businesses requiring it and larger companies requiring some fraction of curbside parking meters to also be electric charging stations. this is neither that difficult nor expensive. so it can take place. >> electric car owners know all about battery anxiety. will we have long range options in 15 years? elon musk is talking about it with break through that's could be coming. but how soon will those be reality in. >> so we have an electric vehicle in my house. and i don't think there's much remaining range anxiety. we can buy new electric vehicles today with up to 400 mile range. charging times have gotten faster and faster. so again, this is part of that infrastructure mind set change. we're all used to pulling into a gas pump. the ability to do this, to clean
4:04 pm
the air, to make it available for low income californians, to think about this as an integrated strategy with more and better mass transit tied to the electric vehicles. this is all part of a process for which the market will make this a reality even well before 2035. we need to get on with the job of shutting down oil and gas production in the state, too. ? i'm glad you mentioned the lower income aspect. does this create an even bigger gap between haves and have-nots. it is like a 10-year-old jeep that you know will run forever. >> one is that the announcement, the executive order, did not prohibit the resale of used gas powered cars so that option is still there. it is still much more expensive to drive a gas car than an
4:05 pm
