Major auto makers are teaming up to announce new targets for electric vehicles sales ahead of President Biden’s executive order expected Thursday.

General Motors, Ford Motor and Chrysler issued a joint statement ahead of President Biden’s Executive Order to occur Thursday saying they were committed to having “electric, fuel cell and plug-in hybrid vehicles” make up 40-50% of all sales by 2030. The action, they added, represented “a dramatic shift from the U.S. market today.”

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation are also reportedly announcing tighter fuel-efficiency and emission regulations on Thursday in hopes of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide released into the air.
