California provides incentives for e-bike purchases

California Governor Gavin Newsom has just signed legislation that expands the state’s Clean Cars 4 All program to include vouchers for e-bikes. The bill is California Senate Bill 400 (SB 400). The program has provided support for buying electric, hybrid, and plug-in cars and mobility options such as car-sharing memberships and transit passes. Now e-bike purchases are included.

An editorial in Outside Magazine makes the case that the current $375 million in annual subsidies for electric cars would go a long way if applied to e-bike purchases instead.
