Involved in the project to completely cut vehicles with the internal combustion engines are U.S. states California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont that follow California's zero-emission vehicle mandate, along with countries from global Zero Emission Vehicle alliance. These include Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Norway and Quebec in Canada.
