The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) marked the organization’s two-year anniversary with the release of its annual report today. ZETA is the first industry-backed coalition of its kind advocating for 100% electric vehicles (EVs) sales in the U.S. by 2030. The annual report highlights ZETA’s major accomplishments during the past year and plans for the future.
The Inflation Reduction Act will transform the U.S. energy sector through substantial investments that will lead us to roughly 40% emissions reductions by 2030. The historic passage of this legislation represents the largest investment in clean energy and climate action in U.S. history.
Since our founding, ZETA and our coalition partners have worked tirelessly to realize our first-of-its-kind federal electric vehicle policy platform. Our Policy Tracker illustrates how our platform is translating into law and administrative policy — as well as what elements require more attention.
The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) is the first industry-backed coalition of its kind advocating for 100% of vehicles sold by 2030 to be electric vehicles (EVs). Achieving this goal will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, secure American global EV manufacturing leadership, dramatically improve public health, and significantly reduce carbon pollution.
ZETA brings together industry, advocates, and nongovernmental organizations whose values and strategic interests are fulfilled by meeting the 2030 goal of every vehicle sold being an EV. This diverse group of EV supporters will coordinate on public education, stakeholder convening, and federal advocacy to promote EV adoption.
Enacting ambitious – but realistic – policies to accelerate transportation electrification will create hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs. Congress must seize this opportunity or risk ceding this economic growth to others.
A Cleaner Environment
The transportation sector emits more carbon pollution than any other sector of the U.S. economy. Electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions and are 67% less carbon intensive than gasoline-powered cars over their lifetime.
By going electric, vehicles owners can save over $700 a year in fuel and an additional $330 in annual maintenance costs. Federal, state and local incentives can drive greater consumer benefits.
National policies to support 100% electric vehicle sales.
The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) is a federal coalition focused on advocating for 100% EV sales by 2030. Enacting policies that drive EV adoption will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, secure American global EV manufacturing dominance, drastically improve public health, and significantly reduce carbon pollution.
