Eight states released an 11-point action plan they say will help them reach 3.3 million zero emission vehicles (ZEV) on their roadways by 2025.

The multi-state plan sets the goal of reducing harmful emissions in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The plan covers three main areas, including building the market; providing consistent codes, standards, and tracking; and improving the experience.

"Today, we're putting a foot on the pedal to get more clean cars on the road," said California Gov. Jerry Brown. "This is real action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

As a part of their effort, the states will increase the number of zero-emission vehicles in state fleets, build out infrastructure supporting cleaner-vehicle technology, and encourage commercial and rental fleets to acquire ZEVs.

The states also plan to remove regulatory barriers to charging station installation, provide uniform signage, and track progress toward the goal.

The states hope to improve the experience of driving the vehicles by promoting workplace charging, offering consumer incentives for purchasing ZEVs, and improve access to charging networks.
