American state will ban new electric cars in 2035

Several American states will make it more difficult to sell electric cars, as they will force the car brands to follow a more traditional way of dealing with cars.

Tesla has started several trends. Among other things, the one with selling the car directly to motorists. But a number of American states now want to do that.

Last March, the Republican-majority state of Mississippi passed a law that makes it more or less illegal to sell new cars directly to motorists.

The method of direct sales has actually been illegal since the 1970s, when the US government at the time banned 'the big three' – Ford, GM and Chrysler – from selling directly to consumers, thus bypassing car dealers.

Today, car brands circumvent the ban by opening so-called 'shops' instead of actual dealers. But in Wyoming, in January 2023, they were ready to go even further.

Here, a proposal was made to ban the sale of new electric cars from 2035. Exactly the same year that several other states wish to ban the sale of new diesel and petrol cars. Here, the argument was that electric cars would hamper the state's economy.

And although the proposal was dropped again, the man behind it – Senator Jim Anderson – emphasizes that he got the proposal out the way he wanted. Namely a debate.

– We did not want to come up with a bill that would actually ban car dealers from selling electric cars.

– But we want to say that there is a countermeasure to what other states are doing – namely to ban the fossil-fuel car, says the senator.

However, certain American states are not the only ones that are ready to do away with electric cars. In Switzerland, they worked in 2022 on a number of emergency laws, which, among other things, will mean a ban on electric cars. Read more about how it is connected here .

Having said that, even the car brands have also started to draw on otherwise wild ambitions on behalf of the electric car.

Most recently, Cadillac has announced that it will not only build electric cars by 2030 at the latest. The brand's deputy director John Roth recently made this very clear.

– We will be completely honest. Electric cars and the internal combustion engine will co-exist side by side for many years.

– We want to ensure that we have the freedom to choose on the market. For both (technologies, ed.) it will be possible to meet the customers' needs, he says.
