California will ban the sale of new gasoline- or diesel-powered cars by 2035, as it announced nearly two years ago.
The announcement comes after the signing of a $370 billion climate change bill last week.
The governor of California issued the executive order detailing the ban in September 2020.
California sets the example for vehicle emissions, and 12 other states are expected to follow it soon
The Californian automotive market is the largest in the country.
Electric vehicles are now required to make up 12% of California's vehicle sales.
Gas-fueled vehicles and used cars can still be driven and purchased after 2035.
After 2035, one-fifth of new vehicle sales are projected to be plug-in hybrids powered by batteries and gas.
CARB was also directed by Newsom last year to prohibit new gas-powered lawn equipment from being sold.
