Association of harmless vehicle manufacturers appeared in the USA

28 American companies have formed the official association ZETA, which aims to lobby for a ban on the sale of new cars with internal combustion engines from 2030. Participants include many EV startups including Tesla, Rivian, Lucid, Lordstone, and Proterra.

In addition to the aforementioned automakers, the association also includes other well-known companies. For example, this is Uber, as well as Siemens and the Arrival startup, which was founded in the UK by the former Deputy Minister of Communications of Russia Denis Sverdlov.

ZETA stands for Zero Emission Transportation Association, or Zero Emission Transportation Association. In the United States, lobbying structures operate completely legally, being part of the mechanism for developing state policy, but their activities are legally regulated, which requires the creation of such associations.

Interestingly, ZETA does not include any automaker that, in addition to electric cars, produces cars with internal combustion engines. This can be interpreted as the desire of the latter to remain in lobbying groups, which, on the contrary, advocate preserving the rights to sell gasoline cars as long as possible.
