The White House has informed U.S. automakers it wants them to back a voluntary target of no less than 40% of new vehicles sales being electrified by 2030 as it works to decrease greenhouse gas pollution, sources briefed on the matter said.

The talks with American automakers on electric vehicle (EV) targets come as the Biden administration is set as early as next week to present its proposed revisions to vehicle emissions standards through 2026.

Sources said a voluntary target could be as much as 50% but emphasized that no agreement with the automakers has been reached and enough details about this remain under discussion, including whether that target will include only fully electric vehicles or partially electric vehicles that could include a gasoline engine.

United Auto Workers spokesman (UAW) Brian Rothenberg said a published report was not inaccurate, adding that “that we have agreed to 40% EVs by 2030. The UAW is still in discussions and has not reached an agreement at this point.” The UAW has opposed EV mandates, saying that it could put some jobs at risk.
