Sacramento trying not to leave low-income drivers behind in push for 70,000 more electric vehicles

“There are only four sites with two cars each under the program. And, in general, widespread access to electric vehicles is uncommon in Sacramento. For instance, the city runs a charging program in parking structures downtown. It’s mostly utilized by those who earn $75,000 or more annually. That could change under Sacramento’s new electric vehicle strategy, which city council passed last December. It calls for 75,000 new zero-emission vehicles, or ZEVs, and 2,200 chargers across the city in the next seven years. That’s huge growth from the 3,200 ZEVs and around 500 chargers in the city today.

Those numbers are Sacramento’s local contribution to the governor’s goal of 1.5 million ZEVs on California roads by 2025, and which would expand to 5 million by 2030.”
