Placing his executive order on the hood of a red, Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a directive on Wednesday to move California away from traditional, internal combustion engine cars. The order calls on the California Air Resources Board to develop rules allowing only zero-emission cars to be sold in the state by 2035.

If the order – which also sets goals for electrifying or otherwise decarbonizing trucks and off-road vehicles – ultimately becomes a rule, it would mean that gasoline-powered vehicles in California would go the way of the same dinosaurs that fuel them.

According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, there were more than 36 million paid vehicle registrations in the state last year, meaning the transition will be a Herculean undertaking. So, what does it mean for you, California drivers and car owners?

What kind of new cars will I be able to buy in 2035?
More nuance will come out over the next year when the California Air Resources Board develops the actual rules and regulations Newsom's order demanded, but consumers will likely only be able to purchase new passenger vehicles that have zero emissions.

While Newsom said he remains "agnostic" about the type of zero-emission cars sold, electric vehicles are just about the only economically scalable option. Expect to see a lot more Teslas, Chevy Volts and the like sitting in California traffic in 15 years.

Used gasoline-powered cars would still be available for sale.
What's the matter?
