California’s Goal: 5 Million Electric Cars by 2030

zev sales graphic

“The goal is to make our neighborhoods and farms healthier, our vehicles cleaner — zero emission the sooner the better — and all our technologies increasingly lowering their carbon output. To meet our ambitious goals, we will need five million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030. Think of all the jobs that will create and how much cleaner our air will be.”

– California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.



There’s a new way to drive.

A better way to drive.

A faster, brilliantly-engineered, turn-more-heads, way to drive.

This is not the environmentalist’s way to drive, or the cutting gas costs way to drive — though it is those, too.

This is everyone’s way to drive.

Everyone who wants the daily commute to feel more like the daily joyride. Everyone who puts pedal to metal for sheer exhilaration. Every driver, every rider and every visionary to follow the road ahead, no matter how well traveled.

Our cars are more than just a way to get from here to there. They represent us. Our style. Our values. Our experience. And nothing brings more to every mile than driving electric.

This is a revolution. A revolution for better driving. It won’t be a revolution forever. There will be a day when driving electric is the only way to drive.

Until that day, lead the charge.

Building on a foundation of success

Veloz builds on the success of the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative, a public-private partnership founded in 2010 to convene, collaborate and communicate on emerging electric car market trends, address challenges and enable strong market growth.

The Power of Veloz

To achieve 5 million electric cars on California roads, it takes power.

  • Power in numbers.
  • Power in our leaders.
  • Power in new technology.
  • Power in the revolution for a better drive.

This is the power of Veloz.

Veloz’s goal is to rapidly increase California electric car awareness through a multi-stakeholder, brand-neutral campaign to engage, educate and empower people from all walks of life. Veloz will use a variety of consumer-oriented, strategic initiatives to meet consumers where they are, and inspire them to join the electric car revolution.
