(Best Syndication News) - The California Air Resource Board unanimously approved a new clean car and light truck rules through 2025. California has been working on the Advanced Clean Cars program for the past three years.

The goal is to cut smog and greenhouse gases. The government agency said that these new rules would help save drivers money on fuel and would create jobs.

The new requirements would begin to be enforced for model years 2017 through 2025 vehicles. Gasoline and diesel-powered cars will be required to be cleaner. There will also be more infrastructure support for zero-emission technology such as battery powered, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles. California will work to make sure that a fueling infrastructure will be in place such as with battery charging stations and hydrogen fuel refilling stations.

The California Air Resource Board estimates these new rules would save California drivers around $5 billion in operational cost by 2025. In 2030, they estimate that the savings would be around $10 billion because more zero-emission cars are expected to be on the road.

Another benefit from moving towards the new zero-emission technologies is the reduction of smog and greenhouse gas emissions. The government agency anticipates that the new rules will reduce the smog-forming emissions by 75 percent from new vehicles sold in 2025 compared to 2014 vehicle levels. Greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 52 million tons suggested the agency. This would equate to taking around 10 million cars off the road for one year.
