Will California kill the electric car – again?

Hosted by
in 1990, California’s Air Resources Board demanded that, by 2003, 10% of the automobiles in the state be zero emission vehicles. That would have meant 100,000 cars per year running on electric batteries or hydrogen cells. Since then, the mandate has been pushed back 4 times, down to 25,000 cars per year by 2012. Today, the CARB, as it’s called, was looking at a staff recommendation to reduce that by 90%--down to 2500 a year.
