Accelerating the market for ZEVs, which include both PEVs and fuel cell electric vehicles, is a cornerstone of California’s long-term transportation strategy. Recognizing the great benefits of ZEVs, as well as the challenges to expanding the ZEV market, Governor Edmund G. Brown issued an Executive Order in March 2012 to “encourage the development and success of zero-emission vehicles.” The Governor’s Executive Order directs state government to meet a series of milestones toward a long-term target of 1.5 million ZEVs on California’s roadways by 2025.  The Governor's Office of Planning and Research, in cooperation with stakeholders across California, has created several resources to achieve the goals in the Executive Order.

The actions outlined by the plan are grouped under four broad goals that state government is currently taking or plans to take to help expand the ZEV market.
