It’s more than just passenger cars now — from New York to Mississippi, you may find yourself on a quiet, zipping electric transit bus. The first electric fire truck in the nation will be welcomed by Angelenos in 2021 — and in the coming years, electric sanitation trucks will be quietly gliding through neighborhoods to pick up garbage and recycling, and more electric trucks will be delivering packages from warehouses to homes, air pollution-free.

Governor Steve Sisolak announced this week his administration would pursue vehicle efficiency standards set by California.
That would mean more electric vehicles would be available for Nevadans to buy – and stricter fuel efficiency limits on gas-powered cars.

Governor Steve Sisolak’s Monday announcement that Nevada may join the 14 states that have fully or partially adopted Clean Car Standards is his latest policy to help Nevadans drive electric. He signed the Nation’s Clean Car Promise. His administration joined nearly two dozen other states to defend their right to protect their citizens from smoggy air. He even signed legislation to get more electric school buses on the road.
