More Electric Vehicles Are On New York Roadways


(Albany, NY) -- It looks like more New Yorkers are getting behind the wheel of electric vehicles. 

Governor Cuomo says their sales numbers were up 63 percent in 2018. There are now nearly 37-thousand electric vehicles on state roads. Experts say if that trend continues, it'll be a big boost to Governor Cuomo's Green New Deal. The initiative calls for a 40 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
