Even though there are only about 340,000 zero-emission vehicles in California today, the state is on par to reach its goal of 1.5 million by 2025.

This is according to a new report by the group Next 10. “The range of electric vehicles continues to go up and up,” said Noel Perry with the public policy think tank. “And the number of choices that consumers are finding in the showrooms is also going up.”

California is on pace to exceed its goal of 1.5 million electric cars on the streets by 2025, according to a new report from public policy think tank Next 10.

Nearly 350,000 electric vehicles have been sold in the state, and 2017’s growth rate in sales was almost 30% higher than 2016’s rate, the report found. Researchers credited reduced battery costs, lowering the overall price tag of the vehicles, and strong demand worldwide as key drivers of the increase in sales.

The Trump administration hopes to keep federal car-emissions standards aligned with California’s as U.S. and state officials conduct crucial talks on reviewing the rules, a top Environmental Protection Agency official said.

“The overarching goal of those conversations is to maintain or retain one national program,” Bill Wehrum, the assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, which oversees vehicle tailpipe emissions, said in an interview. “Maintaining that status quo is important.”

Despite a slow start, California should be able to hit its ambitious goal of putting 1.5 million zero-emissions vehicles, or ZEVs, on the road by 2025, according to a new study.
