New York (CNN Business)The state of California is taking aim at GM (GM), Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan and other automakers that are aligning with the Trump administration in its battle over emissions rules.
California issued a statement late Monday saying that as of January the state would only buy vehicles from automakers that recognize the California Air Resources Board's authority to set tough greenhouse gas emissions standards for vehicles. California also pledged only to do business with automakers that committed to stringent emissions reduction goals.
Separately, the state also said it will no longer buy sedans that are powered only by internal combustion engines, no matter who manufactures the car. It will buy only plug-in electric or hybrid sedans, although California would make an exception for certain public safety vehicles. That rule does not apply to SUV or truck purchases.
"Car makers that have chosen to be on the wrong side of history will be on the losing end of California's buying power," said California Governor Gavin Newsom in a statement. "In court, and in the marketplace, California is standing up to those who put short-term profits ahead of our health and our future."

"EV Fever"! I can't wait to see firefighter coming in their new EV trucks to save houses from the wildfire! Then people running from these areas using their EV that they carefully charged 100% before the power was cut! Be realistic and level the request to the actual situation around the World! Or keep dreaming!

Keep in mind this is just the state government when buying cars for it's fleet. Not to the residents of California

That rule does not apply to SUV or truck purchases.
That's a pretty big loophole.

Separately, the state also said it will no longer buy sedans that are powered only by internal combustion engines, no matter who manufactures the car.
And that pretty much eliminates most cars anyway.

The real question is if this applies to cross-overs.
